Mexborough and Swinton Times September 23, 1938
Mary P. Hurrell, the 11 years old daughter of Mr. W. H. Hurrell, organist at Goldthorpe Parish Church, and Mrs. Hurrell, of 97, Furlong Road, achieved a signal success at the Elsecar Musical Festival last week-end.
In the pianoforte class for children up to 17 years of age she won the silver cup with 91 marks out of a possible 100.
Dr. J.F. Staton, the adjudicator, spoke very highly of her performance, especially in view of her age.
