  Comments I am trying to trace the family on my Grandmothers side, her father was William Ashcroft of Upholland born in 1871 and he married Margaret. Their children were John, Nellie(my Grandma), Annie, Agnes, William and Maggie. My great Grandad and his son John worked in the mines then they moved to Salford for work when the pit closed. We used to visit our family on Mondays in Orrell in the 50's and 60's and I would love to find them. Also Chisnall and Speakman are part of our family.

  Comments I’m curious about what happened to our old flat in Wigan. The address was “The Flat, 96 Greenough Street”, but I have a suspicion we had a back door (up steps) as our main entrance, as I remember vividly that we parked our mini van in the dead end road outside our 'front' door. (Incidentally there was a legend that this was the very house George Formby was born in, but there's no blue plaque or anything...!) Is there anyone out there who knows about all this?

  How did you find wiganworld?    searching for Wigan RC cemetery records
  Comments Hello. Recently got back to researching my HIGHAM ancestors from Wigan, and a bit obsessed with finding Wigan records and local history stuff at the moment. My gr.gr.grandad John Higham moved to Blackburn about late 1860s. He and most of his Wigan relatives worked in the foundries as brass moulders, iron moulders, etc. His mum and dad Henry and Ann (nee Hallam) were married at St Johns RC chapel in 1848. They lived on "School Common". What a great site you have here, I will definitely be back.

  Comments Apologies to Elizabeth for the way your post about the airman has gone. I do hope the moderators will remove the disrespectful posts that have nothing to do with this young man. I know this was a very delicate part of your life, Elizabeth, and I'm so sorry the way your post has gone. Best wishes Joseph.
