Started by: lizzie61 (5) Report abuse
Does anybody recognise these names please ?

Hilda White was born on 22/8/1936 and S Harry Pimblott around 1931 - 1933.

Any information regarding either of the above would be gratefully received

Many thanks for your help

Harry Pimblett used to play for St.Helens. I don't know who Hilda White played for though!

Do you have any further information ie what the farm was called - is he still alive?

The only information I have at the moment is his name and the fact that he was a farmer and was around 29 years of age in 1961.

I think we may be related and I am having difficulty in finding out any info.

Many thanks for your help

Liz

Harry Pimblett did live on a farm in Ashton
At the end of Bryn Rd, the Golborne end

He died a few years ago -- quite a popular chap, was the milkman around Ashton for a while

I use to go to that farm as a kid, my friend had a horse there , am I right in remembering there was a shooting accident or something related to it years ago, its only a vague memory, but its sprang to mind at the name of it.

You're right. Nellie was the eldest of the sisters.
Her dad, Harry senior,used to have a few hours sleep in the lounge in the daytime(working nightshift in the pit)and kept a shotgun by the side of his chair.
