  1. Things you don't see anymore

    You don't see Aunts and Uncles with Nephews and Nieces, that older than them. When I was at school there was a lad in the same class as his Uncle.
  2. Quarry Pond near Sherdley Park

    I recall seeing this pond in the score, when it was drained prior to being filled in. It looked as if it was an old quarry, about 40ft deep with vertical sides.
  3. 1915 conscription

    Thanks ratty, many records were also lost due to air raids in ww2.
  4. 1915 conscription

    I thought that there would be lists of persons liable for conscription. Which would be handy when searching for locations of people. Many men appealed against their conscription, are there any records of the results of these appeals?
  5. Are these registers available to the public.
  6. Foll Doll row chancery lane. There are some photos on the gallery.
  7. Anyone doing family research should take note, that the 1841 census rounds down ages over 15.
  8. The Hotties Culvert

    I think the culvert behind Matalan, ends up at the Sankey brook near Jackson St.
  9. Streets

    I vaguely recall seeing an old map showing a Grafton St. It was opposite the rolling mill on Watery lane about where the Coppersmiths pub was.
  10. 147 Church Street

    I think that the café was called Rustic View, somebody had a sense of humour.
  11. Radio Programmes in the 50s

    Violet Carson ( Ena Sharples ) was the piano player.
  12. I think that it could have been Chevasse's son that won 2 V.C. medals in WW1.
  13. St Mary Church Graveyard

    Thanks Ned, you are doing a great job. Will there be a downloadable graveyard map of St Mary's?
  14. St Mary Church Graveyard

    Hi Ned, Were Whiston workhouse inmates buried in common graves, and if so was there special section for them.
  15. Crank from Ashton in Makerfield

    Hello Lainey and Kingo Peter Crank and his wife Mary nee Littler had a daughter Isabella. She married James Littler at St Oswolds Winwick in 1825. ( possible cousins) The Cranks, Littlers and Birchalls seem to have inter married frequently.
