  Comments Hell there i worked in the Number 2 mill in 1960 first as a carder then in the lap room omg i love working there. The people that worked there was so nice to each other and the management did everything to ensure the employee's where well looked after. My aunty and uncle also worked there in fact most on my family worked there. I remember me and a few buddies would go and l play soccer at dinner hour . I also remember we used to dance in the canteen . Also the workers used to put on pantomime at chrismas time ..tell you i really miss the old days and the friendship people made working in Ekerlseys Mill . :(

  Comments Deen, do you know if your grandfathers siblings were older/younger than him ? If you do 2 good places to look for BDMs & christening info are...

Lancashire Parish Clerks Online and the link to Lancashire BDMs given on the Wigan History Soc. Link on Wigan World.

I located your great grandparents marriage registered on Lancashire BDMs

Both sites easy to use.

  How did you find wiganworld?    Searching for Johnny Parr omega trio and found relevant pictures
  Comments We have been searching for information regarding my grandfather, Johnny Parr of the omega trio and came across a picture of another troupe member. The comment below was from John Parr, his son, and would like to try to contact him. The email on the comment is no longer in use so we have hit a bit of a dead end. I'm not entirely sure if he was aware he has siblings so understandably this may be a sensitive topic but my Mum has been looking for a very long time for him. Any information anyone can provide would be very much appreciated.
