My late Dads cousin 3rd from the left. Barrie Taylor. Lived off Chapel Lane, Bradford Place.
He died a couple of months ago. Sadly his wife, Lillian also died within 24 hours of him.

Hello Ian so sorry to read that Barry has died I do remember him from Chapel Lane so sad his wife died within 24 hours of him but at least they are together. I will tell my Aunty Joyce who also lived in Bradford St. opposite your dad.

Thanks, Anne.
It was a very sad occasion. They had a joint funeral at Wigan Parish Church. It was well attended as they were popular people. One of the songs played mid service was Happiness sung by Ken Dodd. That sums our Barrie up!
