    Inside St.Thomas Church, Eccleston

    Big_Jeff_Leo
    By Big_Jeff_Leo,
    This church is located on Westfield Street at the beginning of what is the Eccleston Ward. Everyone from St.Helens either knows or passes it as it is built from a striking red brick. The Church was founded in 1839 but I know that a lot of people have never actually been inside. Here are some images that I took during an official "open day".

    Unidentified Soldiers from Family Photos

    Mark Haselden
    By Mark Haselden,
    My Mum brought me a trove of family history memorabilia and photos, including a number of unidentified military personnel from the First World War.  I'll post them a few at a time in case anyone on the Forum can help identify them. Let's start with an easy one.  This is a Sergeant Major in the Royal Engineers.  I suspect he's from 1st West Lancs Field Company given that my family has connections with that unit.  His 'tache in the first pic is particularly striking - General Melchett would be proud.  I'm fairly certain he's the seated man in the second pic - cap badge and rank both match and the facial features are not dissimilar.  I have no idea who the Sergeant/Staff Sergeant is in the second pic. Given that Sergeant Majors were rather rare birds, I'm hoping he'll be easy-ish to identify. Cheers,
    Mark

It read 'The best hand job in St.Helens' Some of you may remember it.    

    Sutton Library

    Mark Cunliffe
    By Mark Cunliffe,
    Apologies if this isn't the place to post this but I was wondering if anyone had any memories and (more importantly) photos of Sutton Library, the sadly now long demolished library that used to stand opposite All Saints Church?   Sutton Library was my local library growing up. In 1996 I did my two weeks work experience from school there. It's a crying shame that the council closed it, and even worse that they subsequently bulldozed it. It was a lovely building, clean, didn't show any of its age and a valuable resource. With Central Library closed this past 18 months, I'm sure many Sutton residents have come to realise how much they miss a library on their doorstep.   If anyone has any photos from down the years of the library, both outside and in, I'd love to see them. In fact, I'm always on the look out for photos of Sutton - specifically those taken any time from the 40s through to the 90s   Thanks comrades!
