Newport Hatches, Matches and Dispatches

Newport Maternity Services 1941.
Wedding in St Thomas' Church 1954.
Funeral services 1928.


We all take home delivery from Amazon and others for granted nowadays, but back in 1941 home delivery meant something completely different. In Newport it cost the princely sum of £4 and 10 shillings. Cheap at the price!




Wedding in St Thomas’ Church 1954.






Funeral costs in 1924 included charges for the Tay Ferries but still only came to £18.75. But more expensive to depart than to arrive.
