All Saints Garrison Church (Church of North India) Lucknow - Revisited

Visited the good old Church in Lucknow cantonment again today (9th July 2012). Met Reverend Daniel Subhan at the parsonage. Mrs. Subhan is visiting her Son in USA. It was fabulous meeting him again after few months and got to catch up on the recent activities in the CNI Diocese of Lucknow.

Here are some more pictures of the Church and the Parsonage.

  1. Most interesting. My grandparents, he, later a WO1 in the Royal Horse Artillery "U" Battery, were married here somewhere around 1900.

  2. I too find this interesting as my great grandparents were married here in 1886.

    My parents were married here on 28th February 1939! I have a photo of them leaving the church on a gun carriage with six horses and an 18 pdr. gun!
