Memories of Acomb


when I see the photo Acomb the Village, I remember living opposite the Queen's Arms Hotel, with my family Chris and Lucy Henderson, my uncle Billy and Aunt Elizabeth and mam Mary. I was born there in 1955

Norman was my father and I know he was born in Acomb Northumberland at Middle Farm February 1910. I am trying to trace his roots and would be grateful if anyone has any information.

Does anyone know of a George Frazer/Fraser who lived in Acomb. I think he was a butcher and was good friends with my mum. Any information Thanks

Does anyone have any memories of Wilma Rutherford? I know she lived in Acomb around the 1960s. She was my mother. I would be grateful for any momory no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to you. What was she like? Who was she friends with? etc. Thank you in anticipation.

Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?
