Rog Dennis added: "... I was intrigued at No. 7, Harvey Jones. Obviously too young to be "my" Harvey, but Harvey Jones was one brother of Robert Vernon Jones, of Blistors Farm Bream. It would indeed be a coincidence to have another Harvey coupled to the Jones surname, without there being any connection? Vernon was my great grandfather, on my mother's side. There's a mother of the bride, but apparently no father".

Frederick Cook added (October 2014): "... The father of the bride was George Jones (born St Briavels) who had died five years earlier (on 24 March 1915). The mother of the bride, Lucretia came from the Young family of Cinderford".
