Church Where Grandparents Married

A Memory of Burton-in-Kendal

My grandparents, William Delaney and Phoebe Heighton were married here. The Delaney family lived in Burton for several generations. I believe Phoebe worked for the Misses Wilson prior to her marriage. They moved to Australia a few years after their marriage.  I visited from Australia in 1980s and was delighted to find charming little church intact and loved.
