Hello tommy, my grandfather Jack (auntie Bella's husband) lived at Sutton Manor, at the same time as Ike and Billy,He
worked at the pit there, then moved back to Whelley.Billy would have been my grandfather's brother in law.

hi tommy,i think I have a photo of billy riley that was in some old photos of my uncle Gerald mawdsley's I think it was sent to him from his mother , my grandma,it says something on the back like sorry I had to cut it down it wouldn't fit , then some other writing I cant make out very well, it must have been when the war was on, I will put it on here tommy.

Hello Tommy, I remember your mum well, I remember going to her house in Whelley, then later on we lived near to her in Scholes. I gave Eunice some photo's when she was researching the family tree.
