More on Bobby Glassby

Further to the earlier post on Robert (Bobby) Glassby, it is evident that Ireland remained in contact with his chorister  long after he had left St Luke’s and grown up. On 22 October 1924 Ireland was the organist at the wedding of Glassby’s sister Una to a Kentish man, Frank Frost. The wedding took place at All Saints, Fulham (seen below), Fulham now being the Glassby family home. The bride’s father being deceased, her brother Bobby, now aged 24, gave her away. The wedding was brought forward to accommodate Glassby’s work in the West Yorkshire Regiment, as he was due to ‘return’ to India.
