I do believe that Dorothy Liptrot was Mrs William Wroth of Linney Street who was a permanent feature in my grandmother's house throughout my childhood & beyond.I conversation, she never used a name, always referred to"a certain party"

As so often,I am wrong.Mrs Wroth was Rachel Liptrot
Of the same clan but not Dorothy

Mary Ellen Liptrot ( b.1909). Married Aurthur Robinson. Moved to London
but came back to Wigan for birth of first child.. Tragically ...both died.
She was 21....
