I can’t remember Dad’s user name on this site but he did used to post on here in the past. Unfortunately Dad passed away at Christmas and I just thought I would add this post in case any of his old friends are still on here. ??

Sorry to hear about your dad knew both him and his brother sorry but get them mixed up, when he was over he came to the bowling club, I remember a few of us met-up one afternoon for a chat, I gave him two nights accommodation for three people in a Travelodge up the lakes if he wished to use them why he was over and all my details just in case they asked anything as we couldn't go I felt he was a man to trust found memories of both brothers, is that you with your granddad in the photo

If Wigan was in Australia I would be able to meet you in a pub for a chat instead of coming on here.
You would be welcome to a cup of tea Fred as the club only opens at 3.30 and the bowling as finished by then, not seen your brother down this year if I do will take a photo of us having a drink will that do

Thank you for your comments.
The picture is of my Dad and my daughter Carrie (his grand daughter).
Sad to say that we also lost his brother Jimmy just over 12 months ago x

Hi Lesley, I remember sending a message to your father when he asked did anyone know his brother Joseph, I worked with joe that's the name he liked to be called for many years at Eckersleys mill in Wigan, so sorry to hear of his passing he was a very knowledgeable man.
