The date is estimated. Please can anyone supply an accurate year?
From left to right, back row:- Diana Gasson, Yvonne Copeland, Margaret Jakes, Rose Wilkinson (née Rapley), Gertrude Carrigan, Hepsy Brown (née Doggett).
Front row:- Beryl Chamberlain, Brenda Rowe, Valerie Elliott, Ann Vigar, Suzanne Copeland.
Can anyone name the young lady who may be the cause of the laughter in the front row?

Thanks for uploading photo, Beverley.
This is the first photo of my aunties I've ever seen, and I must say I can really see similarities in looks with my father, Lionel Copeland, and his sisters, Yvonne and Suzanne.
Thank you again.

R.I.P. Margaret Burt (née Jakes)
Margaret was born on 14th November 1936 to Don and Lily Jakes, and was a sister for Jean and Hubert. Their family home was 4, Batchelors Buildings in the High Street.
She died in Crawley, where she had been living for many years, on Monday, 7th December 2015, aged 79.
In 1956 she married David Jones, a R.A.F. pilot, but the marriage was tragically very short. Some six months after the marriage David died when, on a training flight, his plane ran into difficulties but, instead of ejecting safely, he stayed at the controls to steer the plane away from a village.
Margaret later married Jack Burt and they had two sons, Joe and David. Jack pre-deceased Margaret, passing away some 7 or 8 years ago.
Margaret’s funeral will be held at Worth Crematorium on Tuesday, 22nd December 2015.
