Oh my word, Veronica....what a fabulous 1960s wedding photo! Or maybe early 1970s? Anyway, it's lovely! Unfortunately I don't know anyone but I had an Uncle with the name of Catterall from Hindley.

1969 Irene, we could be related yet. There were Catterall’s in Ince in Ince who were related, through my grandfather.

I thought you would notice your Grt Grandma Daniel and your other Grt Grandma with the big hat. Also your Grandma and Grandad… behind me.
Yes Edna that’s Agnes and Leonard.

Veronica, who’s the lady in between my grandparents. I can’t seem to recognise who it is.

It’s Kitty Penman alias ‘Kitty Coalhole’.
I wrote a story in Past Forward and mentioned about what she said to the Rentman. Her mother told her to tell the Rent man that she wasn’t in and he asked her “ Where is your Mam.” And she replied she was in the Coalhole - hiding! Ask your Granddad about her when she came to our house Daniel. She worked in the mill with Nan Cat ….

Thanks, If it’s the article about the Catterall’s then I think I’ve got a copy, I’ll look for that name. If I’m right in thinking the penmans lived at the bottom of John street.
