Different sort of wedding :eek:

The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)
Wednesday 29 July 1936

.SHOPPING CARNIVAL!
A PUBLIC WEDDING.
BRIDEGROOM GETS TRUCKLOAD OF OTTS.

Twenty-nine men and 2271 women filled the Strand Theatre, Leichhardt, yesterday afternoon, to witness the wedding of 22-yoar old Miss Mena Palmer to Mr. Thomas Fidler 23.
The public wedding was part of the week's carnival, organised by the Parramatta-road Shopkeepers' Association, to celebrate the switching on of a footpath floodlighting scheme In the newly-named shopping centre of Westgate, which extends along Parra- matta-road from Johnston-street, Annandale to the top of Taverner's Hill.

The bride, who was attended by two brides- maids, Miss T. Carter, In pink, and Miss K Fidler, in blue, and two little flower girls In pink (Misses L. and E, Miller), was given away by Mr. E. O. Single. Mr. R, Fidler was best man, and Mr L. Single acted as grooms-man.

The Rev. J. Faulkner, of Leichhardt Pres- byterian Church, who performed the cere- mony, told the audience that he did not ask the bride to promise to obey her husband, be- cause he felt that if he did, he should also ask the groom to give the same promise. He wanted both to feel that they were starting off on level terms.

After the ceremony, the couple were driven through the Westgate shopping centre, where from over 100 shops they received wedding presents to the value of over £200. A truck following their car was well laden, the gifts ranging from groceries to furniture. The wedding ring and bridal array were also gifts

Thousands of people who had waited out- side the theatre thronged the footpaths as the gift-collecting procession moved from shop to shop, and a large squad of police had considerable difficulty In controlling the crowd, which could not be kept off the road-.way
The bridegroom, who has been unemployed for a long time, said that his hopes that the publicity would assist him to find a job had not been realised.
Miss Avis Hobbs sang a solo during the signing of the register, and the complete ser- vice was broadcast by Station 2CH.

Thanks Gibbo.

Oh my... :2fun:

Mena's father died in 1932 and her mother (one of the GRIBBLE descendants) in 1933.

It says 'yesterday afternoon' so 28th but I had 26th in my tree from some other source.

No. Probably can't find his parents.


India, Births and Baptisms, 1786-1947 678,024 records

I think that might be less than 1% :2fun:


Not in FIBIS database.

Been thinking again i have :rolleyes:
The article says Miss K Fidler and a Mr R Fidler, maybe siblings to Thomas:confused:
Yes, possibly ;)

No sign of a marriage in NSW with name starting with K and only C= Cicely.

A marriage the following year in same RD.

12311/1937 FIDLER ROBERT GRAHAM WATSON - RICHARDS MARJORIE MARY - PETERSHAM

5301/1943 FIDLER ROBERT GRAHAM WATSON - THOMSON JEAN WILLIAMSON - PETERSHAM

FIDLER Robert Graham Watson Death notice 20DEC1986 Death 76 late of Leichhardt Sydney Morning Herald 22DEC1986

I wonder:

FIDLER Kay Death notice 24APR2003 Death 98 late of Leichhardt Daily Telegraph (Sydney) 30APR2003

The E/R would be interesting.

Yeah. If I have them then we will have a long wait for the reg to get on-line.

I'm betting the E/R will show unmarried sister Kate living with Robert. :2fun: A $1 bet.

"Kate Fidler" in TROVE has no hits.

May not be the right R. FIDLER - 1938 spouse Marjorie Mary to Catholic Cemetery, Rookwood.

The others would be CofE or Congregational or Presbyterian. It may have been Marjorie's not Robert's denomination.

Very few hits in TROVE for Robert.

Well, I thought Broken Hill was too far away. :D

Oh. Tim STORRIER has just won the $75,000 Archibald Prize.

My great great grandmother is a STORRIER and both are descendants of a convict from Scotland.
