Not Brentford

List of names from Parish Magazines

I am grateful to Sandra Graves who loaned me four copies of the parish magazine for St Paul Brentford with St Lawrence and St George in 2015. The earliest dates from October 1971, the remainder are from April 1980, August 1982 and June 1983.

Each provides a list of baptisms, weddings and burials/cremations, along with local advertisements and news of parishioners. At the start of each magazine is a letter from the vicar and in the centre is an insert entitled Home Words which covers items of national interest, for example October 1971 was the month of decision regarding entry to the Common Market.

I have extracted the names from each magazine, noting them in the order they apppear; to search for a particular surname use your browser search, for example Control-F. The advertisements appear on several pages and have been summarised together. Addresses are Brentford unless noted.

October 1971

The following names are on the inside cover, where details of the church services are given.

Vicar: Rev. A A Court, BA, L Th; the vicar's letter on the next page is signed Arthur A Court of The Vicarage, 3 The Butts

Mrs Briggs was thanked for her suggestion to use old Smarties tubes to save the recently introduced decimal 1p pieces towards the church collection. Discontinued threepenny bits had also been collected in tubes for the church.

Under the heading News of some of our Young People
Former Head Chorister Paul Richardson has qualified as a teacher after three years at Christ Church College Canterbury, one of the Anglican Teacher Training Colleges.

Following in his footsteps will be Carole Blunden who starts Teacher Training College in September and Alan Ward who is going to Madeley Teacher Training College, where he will specialise in Dance and Drama.

Christine Jacobs has just completed her first year of nursing at the Hammersmith Hospital and it is nice to see her in Church on her weekends off. Her fiance, Ross Walker has successfully completed the first part of his training as a Dispensing Optician. Jerrold Lee is through the first year of a course in Business Studies.

A junior success story is that of Richard Emmott, one of our youngest choirboys who has gained a place at Latymer Preparatory School, this, many of you will remember, is following the fottsteps of Andrew Everard.

We are grateful to Mrs Winifred Briggs for assembling this information.
