I wonder if anyone remembers St. Catherine`s church band? my grandfather was bandmaster but I am not at all sure of the dates.He was married there in 1883 and a good few of his children were baptised there .Later he played for a while- so family history goes- in Culcheth Military band ( The Tall Hat Band) It may have been in the early 1900`s he was at St. Catherines because an auntie who was born 1905 remembered that he was bandmaster.Obviously I don`t expect anyone to remember him but I wondered if any records of the band were kept.
I`d like to hear the tune of the song.
