INFORMATION REQUEST


I hope without putting yourself to too much trouble you might be able to help? My uncle, Tom Haworth, was born and brought up in Haslingden. (He died some years ago.) He left after joining the RAF during WW2, then settled in Cheltenham.
  • Born 6 May 1922.
  • He lived at 71 Grane Road.
  • Baptised at the Wesleyian Baptist Church, King Street.
It would be beyond all expectations to have anything on record regarding him or his family, but one or two images of Grane Road or the baptist Church from the 1930s would be excellent. 
I look forward to hearing from you – with thanks and best wishes 
Mike
21 Cumnor Road, Wootton, Boars Hill, Oxford OX1 5JP

Painting of the original Astoria Ballroom, Rawtenstall (Click over to enlarge)

This is a request from the Rawtenstall Charity Shop of the ROSSENDALE HOSPICE. 

"The picture now hangs above the shop till and is not for sale but we often get asked if we can sell copies of it.
We would like to find the artist who painted this painting to ask for their copyright permission to reproduce prints which could be offered for sale in the Hospice shop. It looks like the painting is dated 2002.  We think the signature looks like D. Preston but can't be sure."
