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

I was browsing and I came across the article about Jim Hooper. I worked with Jim on the Wivenhoe Power Station near Brisbane. I'd be grateful if someone could pass my regards onto Jim.
Thanks

I spent two very happy years as an A level student at Wigan Tech between 1970 to 1972 at the Spring Gardens Annex down Frog Lane. I am still in touch with several fellow students but would welcome any additional contacts at boquerv@gmail.com
