Help with my MOODY Family

I have found a marriage for Charles Moody and Eva Evans in 1906. It was a Civil marriage in Tameside. I then find a birth for Lewis Moody in Ashton 1915 2nd Q. I bring it up on Freebmd and it's there with Evans - mum's maiden name. I have since then found a marriage for Lewis to Vera Alice Lomas in 1940. These took place at Hurst Methodist Church ORMONDE STREET. Does anyone know them or the church? Are there anymore siblings or does anyone out there know anymore?

Charles Moody was my Granddad's cousin. They where born in Holmes Chapel ( Church Hulme ) in 1877 and 1873. I cannot find deaths for Charles Moody who was a tailor as was his wife either. I wonder did they go back to Cheshire later. I can find a death for Lewis Moody in 1986 but is it him? Can anyone advise please?
