Ted Ward must have been mad !
How can I put this, Ted was of a "different persuasion" but Betty never stopped asking about him.
What a gorgeous looking lady, Ted definitely missed his chance there.
My mother was Elizabeth/Betty Morris, born in Ince to James Albert Morris and Ann Hilton and a friend of your mother Phyllis Brown but this woman is not my mother. She was Ted Ward's girl friend but by all accounts he was trapped by his mother who is reputed to have told him that she had ruined his life! Betty married my father Joseph Arkwright in 1942. We lived in Horwich and when your sister opened her fruit and veg shop in Winter Hey Lane my mother used to see your mother, who talked to her about going to see Ted Ward in Wales - Ammanford? when he was unwell. I have a photo somewhere of Betty and Phyllis dressed up to the nines.
Hello Kath, my sincere apologies for getting it so wrong but thank you for responding and correcting my mistakes. I would be delighted, if possible, to see the photo you mention.
