PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE
TOC H REVELLERS

22 FEBRUARY 2006

With reference to the TOC H Revellers on the front page of the February 2006 issue, I think the gentleman lying down, and also featured 3rd from the left on page eight, is Mr. Sammy Cartwright who lived in The Croft, Knottingley. I can remember him entertaining at concerts in the Congregational Schoolroom playing the ‘spoons’ or ‘bones’.

The gentleman on the extreme right in both photographs is Reverend E. Sunter, the Minister of the Congregational Church (now the United Reformed Church) in The Croft.

Reverend Sunter and his family lived in The Manse, Marsh End, which I believe is now an elderly peoples care home. Mrs Sunter was a nurse, and they had two children - Graham and Julie. Graham was a great schoolboy friend of my brother, John Coward.

Reverend and Mrs Sunter were great personal friends of my parents, Mr. John Coward and Mrs Hilda Coward. My father and mother served the Congregational Church at Knottingley in various capacities for many years.

I remember Mr. Sunter’s involvement in the Toc H movement, and I believe their Knottingley Headquarters were in The Croft.

The Sunter family left Knottingley in the 1940’s and moved to Warwickshire where Mr. Sunter took up an appointment as Minister to a group of Congregational Churches near Rugby.
