Lovely photos. Wonder if your Bradshaw's were related to my Bradshaw's back in the mists of time ? Mind you when you start researching family history you find out there were 100s of Bradshaws all over the place....most with the christian name of John or William in my case, its like looking for a needle in a haystack ! My Grandparents came from Newtown as well, Warrington Rd.

Hi Lorraine, yes Jane Hilton did marry William Finch on the 13th April 1903 in the church of Wigan St Andrew. There is another photo of them in the Finch family album, 3rd photo.
