(Charles Willie NETTLETON 1879-1917) and Mrs NETTLETON (Eva nee HIGGINBOTTOM 1881-1941, both from Lancaster, England), Karaka Bay, to Mr William Stanley JANES (1903-1977), eldest som of Mr and Mrs W.

The bride was escorted by her uncle, Mr P.

Her embroidered veil was worn with a head-dress of orange blossoms, and she carried a shower bouquet of cream with touches of pale pink, comprised of roses, carnations, spirea, and maidenhair fern.
