  • I have been researching my late wife, Janet Fincher’s family tree and I believe her uncle. Percy Robert Fincher designed the church built in the 1930s (ref articles from the Hull Daily Mail recording the opening). The structure was apparently brick on an iron frame and my son, Mark Hammond, a restoration architect, says that method of construction turned out to have a limited life span which presumably resulted in the current building.
    Best regards, David Hammond
