Supermarket Roots
« on: Wednesday 27 September 17 17:01 BST (UK) »
My Bury ancestors have twice fallen foul to the spread of the supermarket. Where they lived there's now an Asda and where they were buried is now a Tesco's car park ;D

Quite a few of my Wolverhamptonian ancestors were married in the freezer aisle of Sainsbury's (formerly known as St George's Church).

I was quite surprised N.C.P. allowed it, to be honest.

I was born under the Molineux stadium - or, to put it another way, the house where I was born was knocked down in order to extend the stadium...

I am quite lucky,  none of my family homes are under building construction , and most of my family homes are still standing (bar one of  my mother's home's  which is no more ( a church built on top of it of all things lol)and my dad's home which was burnt down) . But last year , a work mate went on a life time holiday back to his roots ( Aus to the Uk)and wanted me to research where his family's  homes were  so he could visit them (they were all no more, cleared for car parks !)

Most of the places where my ancestors lived have been declared to be slums and demolished, including some places which would these days be very desirable.
They've even had one of the houses I was brought up in.

My mum's usual comment is "If they were alive today, they'd be borrowing off us!"
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.
