  Comments I was born in Wigan and saw some photo's browsing about Billinge hospital closing.Fond memories of there,and it was sad to see how and why it did close.Thank you for some wonderful photo's of people I knew,places I lived in Wigan.I tried to join the forum but I do not have my own web site,and it states,there on registration,that no use of hotmail,gmail.etc.I tried to contact and admin person via a link,but it did not work.
I hope that I will be able to join in there at some stage.Wishing you all the very best,and thanks for the memories,I hope one day I can come back home,and live again in Wigan.I am not that far away,but it feels like a million miles away.Thanks again everyone.

  Comments As I've not been able to register to the site for several months now due to some kind of site maintenance, I thought I'd try the guestbook for help.
I'm interested in contacting WiganWorld member Jen2312 regarding a family history matter. She has been trying to find my mother and I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to pass on my email address so she can contact me ( mojo_60s@hotmail.com ).
I'd be most grateful for any help.

  Comments Very interesting site, I had hoped to find photo's of my Winstanley's and Darbyshire's, but no such luck. My maternal grandfather was James Winstanley, born 1894 in Orrell, he and his brother William (1897), and sister Jane (1896) were the children of William Winstanley and Elizabeth Darbyshire. I remember visiting Wigan in 1945 with my grandparents when William's daughter Lilian (1921) was preparing for her marriage to Ronald Samuel White, I was their 5 year old bridesmaid.

  Comments The organist seated at the console in the company of Staff members is non-other than RONALD CURTIS, who later had his own organ building and maintenence business at the PARAMOUNT ORGAN STUDIO, Smiths Road, Darcy Lever, Bolton. He went on to become a very famous broadcasting and recording organist and his final engagements were as the custodian and resident organist at the famous Odeon Cinema, Leicester Sq, London, where he played the Compton cinema organ for as many as 20 Royal Premieres. I would very much like to use this photo in a forthcoming video of his life. Would this be possible?
