  • Notes  Marriage:
    • Owing to the mourning in the bride's family, the marriage will take place quietly to-day at All Saints, Witley, Surrey, of Mr Eric Tillyer Tatham, son of Mr H Tillyer Tatham, of 63 Palace-court, London, and the Hon Lettice Digby, eldest daughter of the late Lord Digby, of Cerne-Abbas, Dorset, and the Dowager Lady Digby, of Rockwood, Witley. Canon N G Barclay, of Charminster, Devon, will officiate, and Major Harry Hewat, RAF, will be best man.
      The bride, who will be given away by her uncle, Commander the Hon Gerald Digby, and will be attended by her youngest brother, the Hon Albert Elmar Digby, will wear a gown of embroidered ivory charmeuse, caught up at the left side with a long trail of orange blossom, and made with long tight fitting sleeves. The train is of silver gauze draped with old family lace, and it will be worn with a veil made of the same lace held in place with a wreath of orange blossom.
      There will be a small reception of relatives at the Dowager Lady Digby's residence, after which the bride and bridegroom will leave for their honeymoon, which will be spent in Guernsey. [The Times, 19 Mar 1921]
