Dose anyone remember the dolls hospital on Acton hill
I visited the church in 2008 with my mom, and husband, as this is the church where her dad Albert George Blythe married her mom, Matilda Elkin. It was a beautiful church, so peaceful and quiet. We walked around and saw some family names in the cemetery. Just to finally be in the place where my grandparents were married was amazing. The Blythes were from Acton, and I'd heard of it always, so to visit there was just wonderful.
