My Grandfather

A Memory of Broughton

His name was Ernest Ferrington and in 1885 he was born at 55 Woodland Street, Broughton. The family had just moved from Hulme, Lancs and my great grandfather George; his occupation was a coach viceman. In 1891 the census tells us they had moved to 20 Rylett Street, they were very near to Albert Park. Unfortunately they are not there any more but would like to know if anyone has any history of that time. My great grandparents were George and Mary Ferrington and would like to know the nearest church to Albert Park in 1890 or is it Broughton Church.
