Harold Wright was my grandfather. His mothers family was very active in the church in the Acle area of Norfolk and his wife’s family was likewise in the Wisbech area (she came from Guyhirn). It is believed that he met his wife through her brother, John William Payne, who had travelled to London at the same time as Harold to consider the possibility of joining the ministry. In the end only Harold proceeded.
The chapel near Canterbury referred to in the obituary was in fact Shalmsford St. where his daughter (my mother) had started and run the Sunday school for many years when we lived in Chartham.
