Sheila Bevan added (March 2012): "... re.Rev George Lawerence.I was his first ever christening. He often reminisced about this with my mother after he returned to Whitecroft chapel following his retirement from ministry in the West Indes".

Pamela Milan added (August 2010): "... I believe the lady holding the baby middle row third from the right is my grandmother Mildred Morgan and the baby my father Gerald Morgan. She was strongly connected to Whitecroft Methodist as was my grandfather Matthew Morgan. My father continued this connection and ended up preaching at Whitecroft Methodist and Methodist Churches throughout the Forest".

Mrs Morgan

Janet Kear wrote (Mar 2009): "I am  sending ... a very old photo (above) of my great gran Morgan. I believe that she might be the lady on the far right ( looking at the photo) of Whitecroft Methodist Chapel 1928 (above). I know that members of the family worshipped at Whitecroft. I believe that the lady 7 from the right,  with the lightish hat with a dark band and fox fur , could be her daughter , either Lily or Julia. Perhaps someone will be able to let you know as this will be of great interest to me".

David Willetts added (May 2021): "... In the Whitecroft Methodist Chapel Members photo the 4th adult from right, middle row (standing adjacent to Mildred Morgan), is Bessie Phipps nee Craddock, wife of Ray, the Pillowell coal merchant. 6th from the right, wearing a hat with a light patch stands the lady with the unlikely name of Capitola Denning, always known as Tola (90% confidence) In the lower photo from Janet Kear the subject looks very like Mrs Nash, who lived at the top of Parkend Road, Bream, and attended the Bible Christian Chapel nearby (80% confidence)".
