  How did you find wiganworld?    Searching for Johnny Parr omega trio and found relevant pictures
 
  Comments We have been searching for information regarding my grandfather, Johnny Parr of the omega trio and came across a picture of another troupe member. The comment below was from John Parr, his son, and would like to try to contact him. The email on the comment is no longer in use so we have hit a bit of a dead end. I'm not entirely sure if he was aware he has siblings so understandably this may be a sensitive topic but my Mum has been looking for a very long time for him. Any information anyone can provide would be very much appreciated.

  Comments I am trying to trace the family on my Grandmothers side, her father was William Ashcroft of Upholland born in 1871 and he married Margaret. Their children were John, Nellie(my Grandma), Annie, Agnes, William and Maggie. My great Grandad and his son John worked in the mines then they moved to Salford for work when the pit closed. We used to visit our family on Mondays in Orrell in the 50's and 60's and I would love to find them. Also Chisnall and Speakman are part of our family.

  Comments I’m curious about what happened to our old flat in Wigan. The address was “The Flat, 96 Greenough Street”, but I have a suspicion we had a back door (up steps) as our main entrance, as I remember vividly that we parked our mini van in the dead end road outside our 'front' door. (Incidentally there was a legend that this was the very house George Formby was born in, but there's no blue plaque or anything...!) Is there anyone out there who knows about all this?
