Searching for family history,
My grandparents Robert William & Olive dales home was 8 Neville street, I think our home was 3 Syresham street my eldest brothers schoo was St Nathanials, he was born in 1947.
Olive died in 1953 and Robert died in1947.
The Tweed family moved to the midlands around 1955 but I think my brother stayed in Wigan for a few more years

Alan. The burial of your Grandparents are recorded on the Hindley Cemetery records on Wigan World. Also there are your Great Grandparents, Florence Amelia Jane Linton and Robert Dale. I have found the Family on Ancestry, with both Daughters, Olive and Edith. So I can possibly answer your questions. Unfortunately I cannot reply to you on your email at the side of your name, as the site wont allow me to.

Alan, I have looked on Lancashire BDMs but can only find a marriage between Robert William Dale & Lily Hammond at Manchester Register Office in 1948.

There are lots of folk at WW that are better than I am at this but there are a few more places I can look. What was your mothers christian name ? I found your birth registration....Hindley & Leigh.

Does anyone know the mines that George Orwell visited during his stay in Wigan. My grandad worked in the pits around Aspull and Fourgates in Westhoughton, he left school to work in the mines around the time that Orwell was in Wigan. When I first read the road to Wigan pier I realised he was describing my grandad's working conditions. I am just interested to know if they were the mines he might have worked in. I would appreciate any info anyone can provide. Thank you
