St Thomas, Dudley


I don't usually buy postcards of churches, but got this one thinking that my great great grandparents were married there in Dudley in the 1870s and it would be nice to have a picture of the church.  So when I got home and checked, I discovered, that yes, it was Dudley, but they were actually married in St Edmond's,  not St Thomas.  No doubt with a bit more digging, I shall find some ancestors who passed through the doors of St Thomas, and so this will have some personal relevance to my notes on family history.

  1. St. Edmond's (my hometown!) St. Thomas...it's close enough! Kind of interesting to think that your ancestors took in this view in person.
