Hi Anne

That would be great. My mother will be pleased if there is a link. (She's Wright's Granddaughter).

Just as an extra, Wright's Son was also called Willie Crosland he was born 09.07.1916 in Hade Edge and Died 26.08.1988 in Holmfirth. He married Mabel Harriet Armitage on 24.12.1938 in Holmfirth. Mabel was born 19.05.1916 and died in 2003.

My mother is Enid Walton née Crosland, b 16.07.1940 in Holmfirth and married Anthony Rodger Walton (b. 24.01.1944) in November 1965.

And to complete the direct line, I was born 17.02.1970 :-)
