Wow, thanks for that. I wasn't sure if Peter was actually married to Margaret. Would you know if Peter was actually born in Abram? I was told that his wife Margaret was from Parr in St Helens, but I am not sure if this is correct?

Hi, I was told that Peter had died in 1968, and I think you are right about him lying about his age. A great deal went on in his house at Fields Farm and it was very sad indeed.
Another question? Would Peter have been in the First World War?
