Memories of Acomb


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.

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

I remember a Geordie Frazer as we called him, but I seem to remember he was not a geordie. He was a butcher and on the side was a barber - he was a crap barber but it cost next to nowt so maybe you have a link to this..happy hunting.
