Hi Jerry,

I'm afraid the only information we've got is in this cutting that you've commented on, and this item: http://www.chethams.org.uk/bellevue/items/show/4262 which covers Evelyn Ruby Dovey's being chosen as Railway Queen. Nice to know that the Belle Vue cuttings editors followed up the story to your mother's wedding in Acton.
