    The Atmore’s Mince Meat has a direct church link here, no surprise. Robert Atmore (d. 1911) had been a congregant, commemorated in a wonderful Tiffany window of Christ and Nicodemus at St. Stephen’s. He was also on the vestry of Church of the Crucifixion til he died. The family was still part of the congregation, I believe. I think at least one son continued to own and operate this firm that Robert Atmore’s father founded, the first in the US to produce mince meat and plum puddings.

      And there is the son, Craig, on the vestry! I wonder if he continued his father’s involvement with the predominantly black Church of the Crucifixion near their workplace.
