Wedding At Belton - a Memory of Grantham.

My Grandparents Percy Clarke and Dorothy Flowers were married in this church in 1923.  My Great Grandfather Henry Clarke was bailiff to Lord Brownlow for 48 years and my other Great Grandfather Thomas Flowers had been Coachman to his lordship since 1876, retiring in 1922.  Lord Brownlow attended the wedding and provided the bouquets and other flowers from Belton's nursery.  Over a period of years Henry, Thomas, their wives and both my Grandparents were  buried together in the churchyard.
