Edna Doreen Feather is my 4th cousin 1x removed. Her parents are Arthur Feather and Sarah Ethel Ambler. Our common ancestors are Anthony Mason and Mary Brayshaw – my 4x great grandparents.
Edna was born on 1 June 1906 in Keighley, West Yorkshire.
On 21 April 1931 Edna Married Herbert Dyson at Christ Church in Oakworth, Keighley. A report of the wedding was published in the Shipley Times and Express on Saturday 25 April 1931 (image taken from http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk).
The wedding took place at Christ Church, Oakworth, on Tuesday afternoon, of Mr Herbert Dyson, youngest son of Mrs Margaret A Dyson, of Eccleshill, and formerly of the Worth Valley, and Miss Edna Doreen Feather, only daughter of Mr and Mrs A Feather, of Lidget, Oakworth. The ceremony was performed by the Rev Robert Tindall.
The bride, who was given away by her father, wore an ankle length gown of golden beige silk lace with a full skirt vandyked to a tight fitting bodice. Her hat was of lime green straw flecked with gold and her shoes of lime green satin. She carried a trailing sheaf of Madame Butterfly roses and asparagus ferns tied with a bow of pale pink ribbon.
Edna and Herbert had two sons. In the 1939 Register (taken at the outbreak of WW2) they were living at Crowther Avenue, Pudsey, West Yorkshire. Herbert’s occupation is given as “Editor”.
Herbert died on 27 December 1974 at the age of 70. Edna passed away on 22 January 2007 – 100 years of age.
