The perfect romance
It seems this was the perfect romance. In the 1939 Register, William Page, then living at 17 Cloisters Avenue, Bromley was listed as a Butcher’s Assistant, along with his younger brother David.
Margaret, on the other hand, who was living with her parents on Southlands Road, was noted as being a cashier in a Butchery department. No details of the company they worked for are given, but it could very well have been the same place, and so was how they met.
The couple went on to grow old together, having later moved down to Devon, where they both passed away within a few months of each other, in 1996.
Mr W.S. Page and Miss M.E. Holder
The wedding of Mr William Stanley Page, second son of Mr and Mrs Page, 17 Cloisters Avenue, Bromley, to Miss Margaret Ethel Holder, youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs Holder, 102 Southlands Road, Bromley, took place at St Luke’s Church, Bromley.
