Do you know anything about Bill Lowe?

Maggie K, the only thing I can tell you about Bill Lowe is that he kept a Public House in Morris Street for many years. It would be inserting to hear if this is the Bill Lowe your inquiring after?,

Hi Tom, sorry I haven't looked on the other photo I posted. Joe is my brother in law and he married my sister Eileen (RiP) and Brian, yes they did emigrate when Wigan were at Wembley. I am trying to do his family tree and he is very interested with anyone who has the name Walsh. I speak to him every week, so if anyone has information for him I know he would be delighted to hear from you.
