Pam Harrison I’m looking for anyone who can tell me anything about the Harrison Family from Longton.  My husband and I have visited the area and I have spoken to a lady who knew Giles (a tailor) very well,  He died in 1960 and none seems to be able to tell us any more. I saw the spreadsheets produced from the parish registers when we were in the church and wondered if anyone could look up a baptism for me.  I am looking for the baptism of Mary Elizabeth Harrison who, I thought, was born in 1921 but now some doubt is being thrown on that date.  That same Mary Elizabeth was married in the 1940’s (not in Longton) but I believed 2 of her daughters – Annette and Elaine Clarke – were christened in Longton in 1949 and 1951.  Can anyone help me please?  
Cliff Cox HI, my name is cliff cox and as a young man i spent many happy holidays with my cousins Paul and Peter Kirkham at Longton Nurseries,Back Lane, Longton.Their parents, Frank and Ellen are no longer with us and i wonder if anyone has any information about the family and business. Any help in this matter would be much appreciated. regards  
Mavis Holmes Can anyone help?  I recently returned from holiday in Norway.  There, I met a man (Terje Rian, whose mother was German) who wanted to learn what had happened to a family he stayed with back around l981.  The family lived in Longton.  The lady was Irene Hinchcliffe, the man Thomas Trevor Hinchcliffe (Bob for short).  Bob was disabled and died shortly after the visit.  Their son was also called Thomas Trevor Hinchcliffe, and they had a daughter too.  The son, Trevor, would be around 47 years old today.  Irene visited Norway too.  Irene remarried – surname Rushton – and she may be in her 70-80s now.  They had a neighbour called Philip Dunderdale, who was a police officer with two sons – one was going to go in to the military. If you can help him get back in touch, please email me.  
Dave Birkbeck Does anybody remember the Owen family that lived at Greenlands Meadowhead Lane. I used to visit to call on Elaine the daughter who I met at Morcambe. I just wonder what happened to her and how her life as panned out; Happy days! Any help greatly appreciated Dave Birkbeck, North Yorks
