  How did you find wiganworld?    browsing for any Wigan websites.
  Comments I think Wiganworld is an excellent site. My father was born in Hindley Green in 1896 and as a child I stayed with relatives in Marsh Green often during the summer holidays. Happy carefree days, even though WW2 was still being fought. Thank you for reviving my memories of Wigan. I will be a frequent visitor to your site.

  Comments I must have cousins in Wigan. My mother's maiden name was Jessie Ratcliffe, born in Hoyland Yorks. Her dad was James Ratcliffe, born in Ince. He had relatives in Wigan and I remember visiting them when I was a child in the early Fifties. There were kids the same as age me then. Where are you? You're in your sixties and seventies now kids.

  Comments I was wondering if anyone would know about the following places:
Pagefield Pub
Cross Street Mills owned by William Mawdsley located off Caroline St.
St Andrews Primary that was open in 1951. The one I found info about that is open now isn't the same one. My mum said it had a black fence around it but is all she remembers.

  How did you find wiganworld?    google.co.UK - share by a friend
  Comments I'm enormously grateful to have found this site with the wealth of history your are willing to share with us.

I'm looking for the steel mills of 17xx - 18xx; and, if possible, their owners; and, did they live in Wigan or elsewhere?

This is family history.

By asking for the names of (Jemima) (William and Sarah, married 1842) Broadstock and Olarenshaw, someone sent me records of the same. We know some of the data, we're looking for more; and that might mean going back to the late 1700's.

Again, thanks for all your energies and willingness to share the history of Wigan.

Shirley Haas

I'm also looking for Ashforth, but that's from the Birmingham area.
