Doing family history...I found that a family member from Charnock Richard was married in this church in about 1937.

Just to add to my previous comment on St Annes.

The family I have in my family tree are the Prescotts. Joseph Prescott married Alice Charnock, their son Norman Charnock Prescott was born May 1914. Norman married Doris Southern at St Annes, Shevington in 1937. Norman had 2 sisters Jessie & Hannah.

If anyone recognises any of these names it would be nice to hear from them.

We waste our days with work and strife
Trying to build a wealthier life
Yet in the end we take nothing with us
Except the love that others GIVE us.


Comment by Jonno on 12th August 2018 at 10:07
A regular view for me is that, Mick was stood about 15 feet from my wifes final resting place when he took that pic.


Comment by Mick on 12th August 2018 at 10:43

I like this photo, many of my ancestors are buried there, it has a timeless quality.


Comment by Mick on 12th August 2018 at 12:44
Helen Ive been in touch with Jason and he says they are his nan and grandad


Comment by Veronica on 12th August 2018 at 12:51
It looks very well kept and peaceful - somewhere to while away a bit of time with memories of loved ones. That's as it should be.


Comment by Philip G. on 12th August 2018 at 13:50
"Ad Finem Fidelis."

The taper's spill, upon your 'stone, lays bare the artist's sleight
But now my thoughts of treasured days, pearlescent love, once bright.

When first we met, that Summer's Eve, came players' frantic beat
Then others lauded rapture, seen; our whirling dancing-feet.

We later sat by lantern, dimmed, your fountain pen was found
And then we shared, without a care, aortic pulses', pound.

And now for you, beside your grave, my endless love, displayed
With trembling hand, and broken heart, your roses, gently laid.

That is so touching Philip...

Winnie, I will check the dates I have on my Alice & see if we have the same one...will post an answer here.


Comment by helen of troy on 14th August 2018 at 11:06
Winnie, I think it could be the Alice Charnock I have in my tree. I don't know her exact date of birth but she was 22yrs old when she married Joseph Prescott on the 7th Sept 1904 at St Marys Church, Ince

Joseph Andrew Prescott, 24 yrs, Occp. Underlooker of 13 Taylors Lane married Alice Charnock 22yrs of 379 Warrington Rd.
Grooms father Joseph Prescott...Underlooker
Brides Father George Charnock.... Engine Winder.
Witnesses.... John Prescott Mary Charnock

Hope you find the info useful & I hope she is the same Alice.
