Mick, If the date of that crowning is 5th of May 1957 the Queen would be Christine Howe, If it's 1958 it would be Sheila Connor, 1959 Mary Aspinwall, 1960 Jean Groves. The 1956 Queen was Margret Wade. Hope this may jog the old grey matter and help.

You're welcome, Mick. Not seen Malc Dainty for some time, was told he was poorly a while ago.

My brother John Wilding was in the crowning when Margaret Burley was the queen.
