My wife was named Twigg before we were married. Her dad came from Westwood (Ormandy's houses). He had 10 brothers and sisters. Could this girl be a relation?

Possibly she was my lovely next door neighbour, maybe her sister Carol could answer that better than me, I remember as a child her Uncle Tommy used to collect food for his pigs and I think he may have lived that way.

Edna had an uncle Tommy who lived over the westwood area. He did keep pigs and also had an allotment. Edna's dad was named Ted and he was the youngest in the family.
