I believe the adults to be miss Halsall (Margaret I believe) and Mrs. Spencer wife of the headmaster of St Georges school who also was a lay preacher at the church.

I believe Miss Halsall, who was brought up in Oxford Street married the curate Rev about 57 or 58.
I guess these pictures are from around these years.
On reflection, the other lady is not Mrs Spencer

Correct! That is Margery Halsall who did, as you say, marry the Rev Peter Nunn. She was my mum's cousin. The other lady isn't Edna Spencer but I can't identify her.

Graham the other lady I am sure is Mrs. Giles wife of Cyril Giles. H.

H you are right it is Cyril's wife I knew them both very well. Cheers from another H.

Margery Halsall at the front, Agnes Giles at the back. First boy there at Margery's elbow is David Schofield, and the boy on the immediate right is Alan Ince.
