Looking for info

Started by: nigel smart (2)

I'm looking for any information on the Baxter family from Parbold / Upholland.
My mother was Helen Baxter (born 1930) and I'd like to find out more about her family and friends. Thanks.

Yes, Helen's father (Leslie) had the farm at the top of Alma Hill and I'm sure his brothers owned Baxters Stores. Helen had a brother called Victor.
