Funeral and Marriage Services in the Ruins

Sheffield Independent 4 February 1895.

I was very surprised to read that a funeral and a wedding took place in the burnt out ruins. It sounds as though the wedding would have been memorable “The fact of a wedding taking place, as it were, in the open air, produced considerable interest. The ceremony presented and uncommon site, for amidst falling snow and a snow covered chancel a bride and bridegroom were joined in matrimony”.
