Hi David, I am related to your grandfather. Brians grandad and my grandad(Thomas Green of James Street Lower Ince)were brothers. We met Brian and Jean a few years ago.We haven't seen him for a while now and heard that he hasn't been well,so we hope he gets better soon.

Your grandfather is my uncle Brian. My dad Alan died in 1970 and my mum Nellie remarried Ken Beckett in 1072. Over the years we have lost touch, but I met the Green Family again a few years ago at Elaine's 50th. I have lived in Lancaster for over 30 years and was back in Wigan yesterday which prompted me to look at this site. I'm so glad I did. In the early 70's I remember going for Sunday tea at Grandma Green's and the whole extended family would be there. It would be good to hear about other family members
