I recognise a lot of these children but I went to St James school Worsley Mesnes and Miss Howarth taught us there.Perhaps they taught between the 2 schools.

give my regards to your Norman (and Anthonys too)! I heard that Raymond had passed over and if this is true my sincerest condolences. Sorry for addressing most of my postings to you but we were kids together and I know you.

Hi Olwen - funny you should mention my sister - I was talking to our Anthony about her on Friday. I thought she was born after we left but he says that she was born while we were in Byrom st. We left just after.

Hi John good to read your comments hope you are well ware are you living now.

Comment by: john unsworth on 21st January 2014 at 20:37

Hi Norman Good to hear from you. I am fine. My brother Anthony is okay as well - together with his steadily increasing family - he has just had another granddaughter! How time flies - one minute your playing cowboys and indians over the seccy and the next you have kids of your own - and grandkids. Thats life! Give my love to Olwen and the rest of your family and take care!

Sandra,or anybody else,im desperately trying to trace my family tree.I have no information about my fathers side other than his father was called Robert Ryder and was a policeman.Dad has 5 siblings,one of whom is called David.I was wondering if He is the David that you are referring to.
