  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.
