Doing family history...I found that a family member from Charnock Richard was married in this church in about 1937.

Just to add to my previous comment on St Annes.

The family I have in my family tree are the Prescotts. Joseph Prescott married Alice Charnock, their son Norman Charnock Prescott was born May 1914. Norman married Doris Southern at St Annes, Shevington in 1937. Norman had 2 sisters Jessie & Hannah.

If anyone recognises any of these names it would be nice to hear from them.

We waste our days with work and strife
Trying to build a wealthier life
Yet in the end we take nothing with us
Except the love that others GIVE us.

A regular view for me is that, Mick was stood about 15 feet from my wifes final resting place when he took that pic.

It looks very well kept and peaceful - somewhere to while away a bit of time with memories of loved ones. That's as it should be.

"Ad Finem Fidelis."

The taper's spill, upon your 'stone, lays bare the artist's sleight
But now my thoughts of treasured days, pearlescent love, once bright.

When first we met, that Summer's Eve, came players' frantic beat
Then others lauded rapture, seen; our whirling dancing-feet.

We later sat by lantern, dimmed, your fountain pen was found
And then we shared, without a care, aortic pulses', pound.

And now for you, beside your grave, my endless love, displayed
With trembling hand, and broken heart, your roses, gently laid.

Winnie, I think it could be the Alice Charnock I have in my tree. I don't know her exact date of birth but she was 22yrs old when she married Joseph Prescott on the 7th Sept 1904 at St Marys Church, Ince

Joseph Andrew Prescott, 24 yrs, Occp. Underlooker of 13 Taylors Lane married Alice Charnock 22yrs of 379 Warrington Rd.
Grooms father Joseph Prescott...Underlooker
Brides Father George Charnock.... Engine Winder.
Witnesses.... John Prescott Mary Charnock

Hope you find the info useful & I hope she is the same Alice.

Norman Charnock Prescott was one of my Mother's Cousins. She was the daughter of Edmund Prescott [My Grandfather] who was killed in a mining accident in 1901. That branch of the Prescott Family were keen bell ringers and there is a memorial plaque in the belfry at St Peters Hindley. Edmund's father, Joseph, was also a famous bell ringer and his name also appears on a plaque at St Peters. I have traced the family back to the late 1600s/early 1700s and have files on all of the families and their expansions. Briefly: Norman - s of Joseph Andrew - s of Joseph - s of Andrew - s of George - s of Richard [bap 1739] - s of George [bap 1703] - s of Edward [Not sure which one but likely married Anne Greene]
