Both my parents were born and raised in Wigan my mother in Beech hill (she was a Bolton)we have very little history of them as both of them died quite young. They emigrated to NZ in 1951 and I would love tofind out more about them. I do not know my grandfather (houghton) name as he died when my father was about 8 my grand mother was Margaret and remarried a Mr Saunt. My mothers parents were Lillian and James Bolton. Do you have any knowledge of them? I ahve a similar photo of my Houghton grand parents wedding, my grandmother was a milner and made all the hats.
