The man at the end of front row [right] is my great uncle Tom Dearden and the man at the end of the back row [left] is his brother John [Jack} Dearden. Graham their sister Lizzie [became Lizzie Oakes when married] was a good friend of your mother's. She also lived in Bickershaw Lane.

I have this photo, probably because my grandfather, Sam Marsden, and his brother James sometimes played on the team (but not on this occasion). Seated far left is Peter Grimshaw who returned from a stay in the US to keep the Bull's Head. He had been a colliery carpenter before he went to the US, and was a good friend of my grandfather. I think the vicar was Arthur Holmes (?). He had been curate under the previous vicar, Thomas Twemlow. The man third from left in back row may be George Lowe, and the man second from right (with moustache) may be William Blakeley.

Correction: I think the man in the back row, second from right (with moustache) could be Eleazer Brookes.

On the far left of the front row is Jim Blakeley, my great-grandfather.
He married Jane Grimshaw, who will probably be a relative of the Peter Grimshaw mentioned above.
