What we know about this image :

Probably taken in the late 1950s, the image shows Edith Noble in the centre. The choir master was her brother Tom Noble who is closest to camera on the left. also back left are Billy Ryder and Stan Smith.

Tom Noble was for many years deputy head teacher at Seaton school and actually died conducting a choir at Castle Eden Church as they sang ' In the Bleak Midwinter'  at Christmas. He died doing what he loved most.

Edith was for many years head of Hart Road Nursery School and then assistant head at Grantully Nursery and is fondly remembered by many.
