Full Text

The following item which appeared in the Times and Gazette, Clacton, England, will be of interest to Grimsby friends, Mrs. Healing being a sister of Mrs. C.H. Bromley, who with Mr. Bromley were residents of Grimsby for many years prior to moving to Hamilton, Bermuda.

A golden telegram of congratulations from the King is one of the most treasured possession of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Healing, of "Franklyn", Thoroughgood-road, Clacton, who celebrated their diamond wedding on Saturday.

"The King sends you hearty congratulations and good wishes on your diamond wedding day", was the text of the message they received.

There are only two days difference in age between Mr. and Mrs. Healing, for Mr. Healing was born on March 8, 1856, and Mrs. Healing on March 6th. Mr. Healing and Miss Charlotte Vousden, as she was then, were married 60 years ago on Saturday at St. George's Church in the borough High-Street, London.

Before retiring, Mr. Healing was a builder and they resided at Ilford and Hornchurch before coming to Clacton 12 years ago.

Mr. Healing has always been an ardent church worker and was a deacon of the Cloverdale Congregational Chapel, Limehouse, for over 20 years.

A party of nearly 50 guests, which included Mr. and Mrs. Healing's 7 children, 10 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren, assembled at Oulton Hall, Clacton, on Saturday, to celebrate the event.

Over 70 letters and telegrams of congratulations were received.
