Can I start with a heartfelt thanks from my dad, brother, husband, daughter and myself for all the messages of condolence we have received since the death of my mum (Rena Bradley). Mum loved Comberbach greatly and this has been shown back to us since her passing.

My mum will make her final journey to Vale Royal Crematorium on Thursday 22nd. The hearse will leave Bracken way at about 10:20 and will make it’s journey down Freshfields then Cogshall Lane before passing by the Chapel. The service will begin at 11am.

We have requested that any donations should be made to the British Legion in lieu of flowers.

Thank you once again.

I found this slide in my grandad's collection. It looks like Antrobus post office with a lovely old lean-to greenhouse. Does anyone recognize any of these people ? ... See MoreSee Less

Antrobus first crowning was in 1963 and the the hairstyles suggest this was around that time. There is a list of Rose Queens in the village hall. I will ask around 🙂

Reg Collins had the shop and post office

Ian Hubball Feedback from Antrobus says that it is 1967 and the Rose Queen was Jennifer Whyte from Frandley. She was crowned by Sandra Chalmers (Radio Broadcaster and sister of Judith Chalmers). The last Comberbach Rose Queen (from the Memorial Hall era) was in 1964 so no direct link to the photo.
