A quiet wedding was solemnised at Holy Trinity Church this afternoon, when Donald Cranswick, ninth son of Mr and Mrs, John Cranswick, of Scalby Yorkshire, was united to Miss Edith Crompton, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. Crompton, of Bridlington, Yorkshire, England.
The Rev. Canon Paacke conducted the service.
The bride was given away by Mr. G. Stockdale, and the office of best man was filled by Mr, A. Stock.
The bride was faultlessly dressed in a teal grey costume, and carried a beautiful bouquet of coreopsis.
