  • Thank you so much for this information Tony. I am currently researching my husband’s family tree. He is descended from William, one of Jimmy and Horace’s brothers (there were 5 boys in total). The shop was previously run by their father, James Moore.

  • The shop was run by Jimmy Moore and his brother Horace. known usually as “Horry”. Jimmy Moore was People’s Warden at St. Mary’s for many years.
    He was well known as the person whose “Amen”, at the end of prayers, reverberated around the church
