Gareth, are you related to the Shawcross family who have a roofing business? They were originally from Ince. I only ask because I lived near them back in the 1960s. Hope you don't mind my asking.

Yes I am :-) Who did you know and I will pass on your name to see if they recall. Thanks

I was born in 1952 and was Irene Griffiths back then. I lived near the Shawcross family in Ince. Sheila was my age and we were at Primary School together in the late 1950s/early 1960s, (Ince Central). Her parents were Lois and Norman and she had older brothers, Robert, Dennis and Stephen and an older sister, Susan. She had a brother Norman, but I can't recall if he was older or younger than Sheila, and she had two younger brothers, Trevor and Stuart.....I remember when they were born. I now live in Abram where Shawcrosses have a roofing business and I often see their vans passing our house.

Hi Irene, do you have an e-mail address so I can send you more information rather than write it on here? I will see if my dad remembers / knows you.

As above, Gareth, and thankyou. To be honest, I think only Sheila or Susan would remember me. Just a bit more info.....I lived on Ince Green Lane in a row of six houses that stood back from the lane behind the wall of St. William's Presbytery and church.
