I happened upon your site whilst I was looking for some info on my Paternal side of the family. My late father was born and bred in Wigan and I loved visiting my Grandma and Uncle often. Sadly I've discovered with the help of your site my Aunt and Uncle have died and are interred with my Grandma. I know I had a cousin Gladys, older than myself; she's somewhere still out there. Keep up the good work on here

Hi all, I'm new on here but just needed to send out the biggest love for my unbelievably brave Sis Shirl Andrews following her intensive course of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy to rid her body of the disease that caused her to need a mastectomy recently. Thanks to her fantastic kids (v.old btw!!) JP and Jen, grandkids and close family she now is clear and on the road to full recovery. Love you so much beautiful lady. Your brothers Paul (me) Lee and my partner Chris are so very proud of you. What an inspiration xxxx

I was born in Wigan and still love to see old images from when I was a kid in the 60s and 70s.

It’s sad news I’m sorry to say. If you enter ‘Spencer Road bridge,Beech Hill ‘ in the Wigan World search box. Read copperhead’s second post which says that Tony passed away around 2003.
It may well be that copperhead or one of the other people who posted will be able to put you in touch with Tony’s family. If you wish to contact them do so with an email to ron@wiganworld.co.uk

Does anyone have any information on two ex-members, Town of Memories (Tom) and Pennywise?
The three of us were all close at one time and I would like to get back in touch.

Soreen mentions on the boards about a friends mother being a servant at Elmfield, this was the big house on the corner of Walter Scott Avenue leading onto Wigan Lane, it is now a care home and has been largely extended though the original house can still be seen, also there was at one time some gateposts which had the name Elmfield engraved on them. The land on which the houses have been built on that form Elmfield Rd could well have been, at one time, the gardens of Elmfield house - someone may know.

We could really do with some new members, at the moment, as WW is dying on its feet.

I have been trying to join Wigan World for years, but it has proven impossible. I see other people have the same problem. I guess you haven't seen new members for years? Can some one help?

My recollections of Christopher Home was about early 1970's. I was a student nurse then based at the Infirmary - I remember being allocated a 6 week placement there. Then it was private patients and a ward for routine eye surgery. It was always so quiet there. When I was packing a bag for a patients discharge I was mortified when her husband asked if I had been tipped. A very interesting introduction to private care at that time.

It would be nice for someone to comment on Phil Nelsons post mentioning the Christopher Home in Swinley Rd. Many Wiganners must have be born there, my sister Anne, born 1936 & my cousin Mary was born there too in about 1943/4. WW does a good job keeping memories alive !

I was born in Wigan during WW11 at Christopher nursing home. My parents moved to midlands where I grew up but I loved visiting my Grandparents in Wordsworth Ave and tromping over to Whitley fields. I have lived in Canada for 50 years but still have fond memories. Keep all memories of the town alive so myself and others can enjoy

Laughing gravy.
It seems few people like your posts, and I can see why.
But Doctors in UK Hospitals have to have R or L written om limbs so the wrong limb isn't operated on. NHS is infallible
