Third in from Graham Lunn is Kathleen Glover who now lives in Australia. Marjorie Glover is her Aunt. All the Glovers were very good friends of my parents.

The lady in the floral dress is actually Marjorie Bowden (nee Glover) not Kathleen as mentioned by Leslie. She was my aunt. Yes we all moved to Australia that is correct. Unfortunately both Marjorie and Kathleen have both passed away. As has my mother Gladys Culley (nee Glover). Great seeing these old photo's though.

Kathleen Glover is actually present in this photo. She is standing on the back row, fifth from the right holding the bouquet. Marjorie, as Susan stated is the lady in the floral dress. Christine Gorham, daughter of Kathleen Diskin (nee Glover).
