Alice Gelder, born in 1912 in Rotherham, is my third cousin, twice removed and daughter of Fred Gelder and Martha Ann Surtees.

Below is a newspaper article published shortly after Alice’s marriage to Edwin Sheldon.



The marriage took place in the Rotherham Parish Church on Monday of Mr. Edwin Sheldon, son of Mr. Robert Sheldon and the late Mrs. Sheldon, of 24, Mill Lane, Treeton, and Miss Alice Gelder, daughter of Mr. F. Gelder and the late Mrs. Gelder, of 18, Adams Yard, Rotherham.

The bride was given away by her uncle, Mr. F. Surtees, and the best man was Mr. Harold Whitworth (friend of the bridegroom).

The bridesmaids were Miss Mary Gelder (sister of the bride), Miss Martha Gelder (sister of the bride), and Miss Marjorie Sheldon (niece of the bridegroom).
