It has been a long-time, hope I have remembered everyone's name!
"Elsie Tomlinson" was likely to have been related to an old friend of mine, and Wiganworld member, Tony Tomlinson.
The same goes for Angela Green, could be related to Roy Green.
Elsie did have a younger brother Anthony (Tony) so could be. Also had older brothers David who was the mechanical engineer at Golborne colliery, Chris and I think John ?
With regards to Angela she had a younger brother Roy
Ian, both Tony and Roy worked at Parkside Colliery.
Ian - when you were at the school were the photographs of the 11 former pupils killed in WW1 still on display. They were placed there in 1920, but have disappeared - see:
Hello David, I was there 1964 - 1970 sorry cant remember those photos if they were there I'm sure the teachers would have made us aware of the history behind them
Thanks, Ian. So much for 'We will remember them'....
