    Looking at POWs from St Helens WW1. One man is Lance Corporal Austin Bennett of Royal Irish Regiment taken prisoner 5 Sept 1918. His POW record has his next of kin - mother Agnes - living Colliery House Thatto Heath, St Helens. His service record has him demobilized to Colliers House. Nutgrove, Thatto Heath, St Helens. Looking for any info on Colliery/Colliers House Thatto Heath

    By Kirsty,
    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has any information relating to the Engine Inn, Newton Road, Parr, St. Helens. I'm interested in the history of the pub and what it would have been like around 1911. I'm looking at the 1911 census when John James LIGHTFOOT was landlord. Any info on this LIGHTFOOT family would also be interesting. Many thanks for reading

    Guernsey Evacuees

    the olden days
    By the olden days,
    Does anyone remember the Le Cheminant family who lived at 34 Cowley Hill Lane during the War.  Thelma was in the WAAF, Violet worked at P{ilkingtons City Road, Barbara at a Shoe Shop, Freddy was at Rivington Road School, and so was the youngest Jennifer.  The one I am in touch with still is Sylvia who will be 86 on 15th June two days before me.  Barbara, Sylvia and Jennifer were in the Saxon Troupe with me and we entertained at various schools and Church Halls all through the War. I first visited them in Guernsey the year after they returned with a friend Margaret Smith who was 15 and I was 14 and 1 month in 1946.  I fell in love with the Channel Islands then and still think of it as m,y dream place to live.   Jennifer lives in Australia and Sylvia is still alive and living at L'Erre in Guernsey.  Their Dad didn't escape as they evacuated women and children and were overrun by Germans before they could join their families.  He was still alive although they had no news of this for about 3 days after the end of the War.  Citizens /Advice got lists each day of known survivors.         J   J
