The marriage of Miss Bessie Early, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Early, of “The Kloof,” 2, Broom Crescent, Rotherham, to Mr. Denis Thompson, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, of 141, Middle Avenue, Rawmarsh, took place last Saturday at the Doncaster Road Congregational Church, Rotherham.

The Rev. D. C. Brameld, of Felstead, Essex, officiated at the choral service.
