Just received this email from the Netherlands, can anyone help?

I’m looking for descendants of Richard and Elizabeth Heaton, married at St Catherine’s Church on 26 August 1891.
I’ve got their family bible and I’m willing to return it to the family.
Could “Wiganworld” be of any help?

starting from here from:
Marriage: 26 Aug 1891 St Catharine, Wigan, Lancashire, England
Richard Heaton - 23, Miner, Bachelor, 16 Cecil Street
Elizabeth Smith - 22, Spinster, Parish of All Saints, Hindley
Groom's Father: Moses Heaton, Miner
Bride's Father: Samuel Smith, (deceased), Miner
Witness: John Bibby; Elizabeth Heaton

good trace on ancestry for above - same named couple in 1911 moved to Belthorn Rd, blackburn. Were richard's parents moses and elllen and was richard born 14 feb 1868, baptised all saints 27 apr 1868, his father being a collier?

On 1911, this couple had 3 children, ellen, eilzabeth and john. there's a trace in Blackburn on the 26 sept 1939 register (census) 363 haslingden road, where Ellen is widowed (age 77) living with daughters ellen (age 47)and elizabeth (age 44)both still surname heaton therefore unlikely ever married. No trace of son john. an ellen heaton same dob [o2 may 1892] died in blackburn in 1978.
