  9. My mother used to make it when I was small and I am ashamed to say I don't know how to make it. If anyone can tell me the ingredients and how to make it I would be so grateful.

    Jumble sales

    I live in Kent and we still have Jumble sales here as well as boot fairs
  11. I think it was a brown van that used to travel round selling bedding ( sheets, pillow cases etc ) and pinafores, clothing. The customer used to pay so much a week and Mr Clitheroe used to mark it down in his little book. This would have been in the 50s and early 60s.
  12. I have an old receipt which names my Great grandfather. William Rigby & Sons Monumental Masons Eccleston Hill Quarry Prescot Road. St.Helens Residence 46 Knowsley Road St.Helens Does anyone know where this quarry was and what happened to it. William died in 1943 and I think his son Henry took over. Any information would be great as I'm doing the family tree and don't live in St.Helens anymore.
  13. I don't know if this will interest anyone but my aunt Lilian Scott Cartledge married John Wilson on 13.7.1926 at the Parish Church On the marriage certificate her residence was Plumb's House Chorley Place Prescot
  14. My father Oswald Rigby was born in 1916 and was living at 24 Thomson Street, Toll Bar. I want to Know which Roman Catholic Church is the nearest as I want to find out his baptism details. Also as I don't live in St.Helens, how do you go about doing that. Hope someone can help.
  15. Thomas was found guilty of manslaughter on May 10th. 1887. On the 1891 census Thomas was in prison in Gillingham, Kent not Maidstone. Hope that helps.
