The Wedding and Pre-Wedding Party of Keith Gransden and Daphne Patricia Tierney

On the search for Shirley and Jefferey’s wedding I came across this lovely Gransden wedding description. This wedding is for Keith Gransden and Daphne Patricia Gransden nee Tierney. Keith Gransden confused me for a long time when I first researching the family tree. I had all of this information about a Keith Gransden but no one knew who he was. His name was Keith but the family have called him Mick for as long as they could remember.

Unfortunately, the photograph in the paper was not a very good one, and I do not have a better one of their wedding. Still, I have put the photo of Patricia Gransden nee Tierney, from the newspaper up. It is the only one that I have.

  1. These wedding reports tell us so much. I must take a look at Patricia as I have Tierney ancestors. I doubt she is from my line as mine were staunch Catholics. But one never knows …

    • Hi Jill,
      a while since I have heard from you. A while since I have had a chance to put much up on my blog. I don’t know much about the Tierney family, but I know that a couple from this family got married to Catholic women, so you never know.
