In 1934, Marjory married George Alaister Turnbull.  Below is a newspaper article(s) which describes this occasion.






Pinder – Turnbull Wedding

The marriage took place in the Eastwood Methodist Church on Thursday of Miss Marjory Pinder, M.A., the younger daughter of Mrs. Pinder, of East Dene, Rotherham, and the late Mr. M. H. Pinder, to Mr. G. A. Turnbull, B.Sc., the only son of Mr. And Mrs. W. Turnbull, of Newcastle-on-Tyne.

The marriage service was conducted by the Rev. G. W. Thorn (Circuit Superintendent Minister), and the organist was Mr. Harold Rooks.

The bride, who was educated at the Rotherham High School and took her degree at the Sheffield University, has since been French and music mistress at the Shiremoor Modern School. The bridegroom, who was educated at Rutherford College, Newcastle-on-Tyne, took his degree at the Durham University and is mathematics master at Bedlington Secondary School.

The bride was attired in a charming ivory satin gown, combined with wreath and veil, and carried a bouquet of cream roses. The chief attendant, Mrs. Sidney Addy, was dressed in green floral georgette and carried a bouquet of lemon carnations. The two junior attendants (nieces of the bride) were dressed in primrose georgette and carried Victorian posies of marigolds.

A reception was held in the Methodist Church Schoolroom, Eastwood.

The honeymoon is being spent in North Wales, and the newly-married couple will take up their residence in Morpeth, Northumberland.
