5 -  Group photo of Rev John Alleyne (Rector),  Joe Guy, Rev Derek Clawson and Jimmy Reid on the front row and Norman Lea,  Andy Gibson, Henry Littler (see below for more info) with Reg Gorton and John Goodale


6 - This must have been a Church ‘do’ as there are a lot of familiar faces on this one including my own in a girl Guide uniform which makes it the early 70’s!


7 - Jimmy Reid and Joe Guy looking after the Garden of Remembrance


8 - I haven’t got a clue who these people are but it’s possibly a Youth Club outing.


9 - All Saints Football Team - with thanks to Joe Guy and Peter Crompton (Goalie was Peter's brother Bobby). Also in this photo is George Bayley of School Way who married Joan McDonough, Paul's sister. They emigrated to California but sadly, George died about 12 years ago.


My thanks to Les Lunt who has given me all the names of the football team: "The photo is taken in 1947. My brother Alan, (Alan Lunt who was a pal of Len Rossiter... both went to Liverpool Collegiate) is on the extreme right of the photo."  The names are:

On the left: GEORGE RONNIE JOE BOBBY Rev BILL BILL BOB ALAN BAILEY ROBERTS GUY COMPTON WADE FERNS FOSTER LUNT
Kneeling:- ERIC GEORGE JOHN RONNIE STANLEY KETTLE FREEMAN FERNS WYKE BOWAN
"The only name my brother isn't too clear about is RONNIE WYKE or is it Wickie?"


10- This is Miss Adelaide Watt who had All Saints Church built for her 21st Birthday whilst living at Speke Hall. Miss Watt was the last land owner to live at Speke before it was sold off for housing. I was fortunately and very kindly given this picture by Speke Hall. It is taken from a book of Congratulatory messages from all her estate workers and their families for her birthday and is seldom seen as the book is now becoming fragile.


11 - Matt Moneypenny, my Dad and Churchwarden of All Saints


12 - The Good Old Days, a show produced and performed by members of both congregations and community


13 - Thank you to Tom Whatmore for this photo of All Saints Choir in 1932 - with names!


14 - PCC of 1916: From left, back row - Billy Wyke, possibly another Wyke, ???, ???, Richard Leadbetter, George Wyke

Third row back - ???, Mrs Quint, Evelyn Leadbetter (wife of Richard), Ada Swift (later wife of Rev Paterson), Ada Swift's sister

Second row - Mr Quint, ???, Rev Paterson, Mr Lea, Mr Leadbetter Senior

Front row - Jim Latham, Richard Leadbetter Junior, Mr Smith (School Master) Sam Taylor

There is a note on the back of this photograph -'Richard Leadbetter top row is Aunt Maggie's son, two sisters married two brothers.' Aunt Maggie must have been a Leadbetter so I am making the assumption that these names were written by a Leadbetter too.


15 - This photo was taken around 1960 and show the Curate, Russell Twyford, the Verger Joe Guy, and sidesmen Reg Gorton and Jimmy Reid


16 - This next photo is dated approximately 1964 and again shows Jimmy Reid and Reg Gorton, with the Curate Frank Parkinson and Joe Guy. The man in the middle is Ted Pickett who was Church Warden for a time, and was still a regular at All Saints until he sadly passed away in October 2001. He is missed by all who knew him.


17- This photograph shows Norman Lea, Rev Derek Clawson, Jimmy Reid and Joe Guy on the front row. Back row shows Andy Gibson, Henry Littler (see below) with Reg Gorton and John Goodale. It was lovely to hear from Tim Littler from Lisburn, Northern Ireland in 2006 who spotted his grandfather, Henry Littler MBE second from the left on the back row, behind Rev Clawson. Henry received his MBE in the 1960's and is also on the Photographs page 3 in photos 5 and 6. Henry lived in Speke until he died in the early 1980's.
