Memories of Lancashire
I am looking for any information about a family called Mccormack, they lived in Stonehome Terrace, then Goodshawfold, then Hamer Avenue. Phyllis Mccormack was in the army in the 1940s, stationed at Catterick army camp (anything on her would be very welcome). Her parents were Michael Mccormack (he died in the First World War), and her mother was Jane Ellen (nee Heys), she married again to a Herbert Meeks. I know it seems I already have info on the family but there is such a lot missing. Phyllis worked at Springbank Mill, Goodshawfold and at Kippax Mill in the 1950s. Any information I would be very grateful for, thank you for reading this.
The Jesters Pub
Hi, the name's Tony Conway. I now reside in the States and have for the past thirty years. For approximately two or so years I lived and worked in the Jesters Pub in Crawshawbooth. I remember with great affection the people, and especially Tony and June Frame the landlords, they had a daughter Victoria. I also worked for the British United Shoe Co, so travelled to many a shoe factory in the area. I have, since coming to the States, been back to England and Ireland (where I am originally from) many times, but not up to Lancashire. Any info on what happened to the pub and people would be appreciated. With fond memories, Tony. Email: email@example.com
Going Back Some Day
My husband has always wanted to go back to his grandfather's home, we live in Canada, but never could. We retire next year so I am researching the area. He was only 3 when they visited.

Can Anyone Remember?
Hello, my name is Danny Corcoran and I am trying to trace my family tree. Unfortunately my father James Thomas (Tommy) Corcoran died last year and he hardly ever spoke about his life growing up. I have been going through his belongings and found some photographs with his address on the back as 12 Adelaide Street, Crawshawbooth, Rossendale, this would be around 1950. He was raised by two elderly ladies. I am wondering if any one can remember Tommy or the two ladies that lived there at that time? I also have a photograph of four children, one of them being my dad I think, and the others named as Frank Mashell (or Maskell... not very clear writing ), Tom Scofield, Joice Mashell and then Tommy. On this photograph Tommy would only be about 4 years old so this would be around 1944. The other children are all older - Joice looks about 7/8, Tom Scofield looks about 9/10 and Frank looks about 12/13. My dad was born in Manchester... Read more
I lived at on Staghills Road (my maiden name was Taylor) and I went to Newchurch C of E School until 1958. I remember Mrs Roberts and Mrs Barlow, the teachers in the top 2 classes. My favourite time at school was when we were allowed to go across to the field at playtime. Sadly the school was pulled down and replaced by a new one down Dark Lane.
Newchurch was a lovely village, then they went and pulled down the houses on one side of the street. I remember Rothwells Butchers, they made lovely potted meat (Ican still taste it!), Schofields had Home Farm, there was a chip shop, a grocers, a wool shop. The Post Office was further down the village, Joe Ainsworth ran it, I used to ride the pony that he owned. When they altered the village they took away a lot of its character. Though I now live in Nottinghamshire, Newchurch is still my home and I love to go back there and... Read more
