Hannah Mabel Early, born in 1910 in Rotherham, is my second cousin, twice removed and daughter of Frederick Ambrose Early and Mabel Hutchinson.

Below is a newspaper article published shortly after her marriage to Vernon Ferns Brameld.





The marriage took place in the Rotherham Congregational Church, Doncaster Road, on Saturday, of Miss Hannah Mabel Early, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Early, of “Kyngeston,” East Bawtry Road, Rotherham, to Mr. Vernon Ferns Brameld, elder son of Mr. and Mrs. E. V. Brameld, of “West Ville,” Doncaster Road, Rotherham. The service, which was choral, was conducted by the Rev. V. E. Watson (Pastor), the hymns being “O, Perfect Love” and “Lost Devine.” The organist was Mr. W. Norris (cousin of the bridegroom). The church was decorated with pink and white flowers.

The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a white dress of marocain and lace and veil surmounted with orange blossom. She carried a bouquet of pink carnations.

The chief bridesmaid was Miss Dorothy Brameld (sister of the bridegroom), and a small attendant was Miss Jean Early (niece of the bride). Miss Brameld wore a blue floral organdie dress and pink and blue sash. Miss Early wore a dress of pink net and carried a posy of sweet-peas.

The best man was Mr. D. Clayton Brameld (brother of the bridegroom), and the groomsmen were Messrs. Eric and Harold E. Early (brothers of the bride).

The bride’s mother wore a wine-coloured two-piece ensemble and hat to tone, and carried a bouquet of cream tea roses; and the bridegroom’s mother wore a pale clover ensemble with hat to tone, and also carried a bouquet of cream tea roses.

At the reception, which was held in the Doncaster Road Congregational School Hall, there were 47 guests,

The bride’s gift to the bridegroom was an engraved ring. The wedding presents included a cushion from the church Sunday School, and a Westminster chimes clock from the staff of the British Oxygen Company, Cricklewood, London, where the Bridegroom is employed.
