  Comments Great site -- one of the best I have seen for layout images and responses. I am presently retired and have been writing my biography. 8I am looking for a colleague Ian Crompton who was an art/pottery teacher in the Ashton / Wigan area. I worked with him in Knowsley Secondary in the late 1960's -- lost contact with him. It would help if anyone knew of him to allow me to talk to them. not sure if I can leave a contact email but would appreciate the moderators support on this.

  Comments Just wanted to say that I saw an advert for The Coop on TV....a quick shot at the beginning shows a church. It couldn't be a church at Ince, St Marys ? Anyone seen it ?
Thanks for letting me post that, I know its not really guestbook stuff.

  Comments Great site for Wiganers & others, look at it every day.

Help required. In the course of researching my
Prescott family history I have traced my Grt Uncle, John Prescott born in 1871 in Ince. John had a son Eric born abt 1910 who married Adeline Gregory. They in turn had a son David John born April 1942.

If anyone recognises these names could they leave a message please. I have family history that I am happy to share with them. No Strings attached.

Many Thanks.

  Comments I understand My Father, Harold Kellie who was a builder and also a Wiganer, knocked down some houses across from Wigan Hospital on Wigan Lane around 1960's which I think we're called The Woodlands. Can anyone tell me anything about the homes and who lived there in 1900's onwards. Any photos also helpful. Thankyou

  Comments Hello, I have come to Bolton/Wigan to do research on a Canadian/ British folk hero who came from Wigan. His name was Joseph "Joe" Naylor. I know he was born on August 12, 1872 in Wigan. He died 5th October 1946 in Cumberland, British Columbia, Canada. If this is your relative, then I am absolutely dying to speak with you about him. My email is Karlie.Banville@gmail.com.If you know anything, if you think you know anything, I would so appreciate you contacting me. Joe Naylor is an important part of Canadian history, and I can't let him fade into nothing. I have one photo of him that I am happy to share, if it helps. Thanks for your time.
