I am looking for advice on locating a church in Hampstead.
Phoebe Richards married John Armstrong in 1832 in Hampstead. (Pallots index)
  John died in 1838 aged 28
Is there any way to find banns or marriage entry. There is the number 204 on the index has that any relevance.
Many thanks

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Wedding of my lovely aunty Gladys
« on: Friday 17 April 20 19:34 BST (UK)  »
I would love this picture of my auntie Gladys aged 21 in 1946. Her younger twin sisters were 10 years old. I would love to have this restored.
I would love black & white or colour would be great.
The bridesmaids dresses were wearing white tops with navy blue buttons.
The rest of the dress is blue gingham.
White socks navy blue shoes
Many thanks

The picture of the blue gingham is a memory

I think that you are most likely right but would a solider be allowed to wear WW1 medals on a WW2 uniform.

He re enlisted 01.04.1940 into the Rifle Brigade embodied Territorial Army discharged 15 06 1942

My grandfather passed away many years ago. This photo could be him so l thought l would see if anyone could identify the uniform. l don't have the orginal just a this. l appriecate all the help

So it seems as if it is a uniform from WW2. Grandad did received British War Medal and the Victory Medal from WW1. As of his generation he did not speak of his war. All bar one of his children have passed away. My auntie thinks it is him but she was evacuated for the duration. She was a small child. I have added a picture of him in 1953, to see if anyone thinks they could be the same.
