I believe my great grandfather had a painting and decorating business located at No 1 High St, which I believe is on the jenction corner front left. His name was John Arstall. He died in 1901 leaving a wife and 13 children!
I think one of his sons, Alfred, is among the WW1 casualties listed on the Peace Gate and the Village Cenotaph.
a gentleman name albert Arstall used to decorate my nans house in smally st my nan and grandad was called william and florrie mason.
You still see Albert's Son Ken, out and about around Standish. He was a painter and decorator too, used to live in Heaton St. Think he's retired now.
