School st

Started by: kyliec88 (5)

I've known for a while that in 1939 a good portion of my grandads family including my grandad himself lived on school st(23,25,27). They were the carter's I'm just wondering if anyone knew them or has any pictures of them. A few of them were definitely still living there around 1945 from marriage records.

It’s off Ince Green Lane. Coming from Lower Ince it’s the last street on the left before the Manchester Road junction with Ince Green Lane.

There are two School Streets one off Ince Green Lane as Gaffer says near the Central Flats and the other in Scholes next to the Ball and Boot or whatever it's called now.

If you consider "Wigan" to be the area covered by Wigan Council, there's at least half a dozen School Streets.

If you consider "Wigan" to be the town bearing that name, then there's only one.

There's also a School Street in Abram. I imagine most towns/villages had a School Street. Hope you find it, Kyliec88.

I was born in School St (Scholes) My Mum's maiden name was Carter. Her parents (my Granparents) lived on the opposite side of the street - not sure of the numbers though.

This week, I'm going to School Avenue. I believe it's in Whelley!

Tis indeed in Whelley, at the side of the old school site strangely enough.
