  • Notes 
    • Gertie was born in Union Street, Sandbach and moved to Wigan with her parents and lived at 1 Morris Street, Spring View, Lower Ince, Wigan and was to remain in Spring View until her death in 1977. She worked in The Empress Cotton Mill, Anderton Street, Higher Ince. During WWII she went to work at the Ammunitions Factory (Bradley, Standish) where she inspected bullets.

      Margarer Jones
      Gertie was born in Sandbach, but moved with her parents to Wigan when she was two. The family lived in Morris Street, Spring View, which was where the entrance to Springs Branch (railway) was. She had many happy memories of her time in Morris Street and following her father's death in 1935, she lived with her mother in Marlborough Avenue. She eventually married and she and her husband continued to live in the family home until her death in 1977.
