The procession is going down Moss Lane towards Warrington Rd.The leading lady I'm sure is Mrs Bromilow or Brimlow I'm not sure on last name, her husband Jimmy used to play the piano at the chapel as we called it. Followed by Grace Titley,although I think her last name was Tittle, she had a brother called Eric and her father's name was Norman who was a special constable in the police force. I can't remember her mother's name but they lived in Wright St, the Low Hall public house was at the top of their street. In front of their house was the dinner centre where all the school dinners were prepared.The family home still stands but the Low Hall pub is long gone so is the dinner centre.If I've got any points wrong I stand corrected. Will check for further updates.

Flintstone, It was Grace Titley and her mother lived next door but one to her. Graces married name is Roe and she still resides at 13 Wright St. The Low hall Inn was destroyed by fire when it was self contained flats and was demolished in 1989.
