  • Notes 
    • James Isherwood worked at Sutcliffe Speakmans cotton mill as a factoryl abourer. Also in the spinning mill.
      He died circa 1956 as the result of a hit and run traffic accident onP ensby Road, Thingwall late one evening when walking home from thepub. T he driver was never found but thankfully a family friend wasfirst on t he scene and recognised him and called the emergencyservices, but he d ied in hospital shortly afterwards. When he livedin Leigh he used to g o to help in a pub in Twist Lane at night, haddone for years even when G randma was alived apparently, the licenseewas an Alice Isherwood and h is cousin. He was pretty pie-eyed andnoisy on many an evening. The bit o f scandal was that he attemptedsuicide by putting his head in the gas o ven after discovering that hehad a dose of ┬┤┬┤clap" but there was not s ufficient money in the meterand thankfully he of course recovered.
