Can anyone remember if the funeral parlour was sited were the coop used to have its repair shop in Lugsdale Road? I can remember the repair shop, I did work at the CAB in the 80s, which used that site before it moved further along the building, above was the old theatre/cinema which I have seen.

Widnes Born And Bred

I was born in Moss Bank in 1945 and had 3 brothers and one sister; my maiden name was O Connor. We lived at 12 Brown St and I have many happy memories of my first 11 years there. I went on to Notre Dame School in St Helens. I married Jim Edge from Alexander Drive in ditto and he used to work at the old Widnes baths. We now live in Australia but we still try to visit Widnes as often as we can.
