Celebration for the centenary of Benton Congregational Church which was built in 1846.
The church schoolroom was being used as billeting for soldiers at this time so the location on this occasion was the lower floor of  the Rawdon Temperance Hall.
The upper floor was the cinema "Rawdon Empire" .
Standing, from left to right are the Rev. Sydney Nicholson, Miss Isabella Johnston (cutting the cake) and the Rev. J L Davies.
The lady sat in front of the cake is Mrs Gertrude Nicholson, the girl on her left is Mary Bickerdike.
