No, it was pure chance really that I lived there ,one of the very very few good things to come out of the war.
After Manchester was bombed so heavily on December 23 abd 24 1940
my sister and I were rushed to Snailbeach.
I lived with David Oldfield and his wife zGertrude.
My sister with Davidís mother Annie Oldfield ,Tom Oldfield  her husband and
Alfred Blakemore her brother.
Annie and Alfred were my grandmother Maryís younger sister  and  brother.
Mary died in Manchester in 1916.
My father

went frequently to Snailbeach .
I am in touch with ,the grandson of Mary,Alfred ,Annie ,William and Johní s bother David  .
After a time I lived with other people as Gertrude was expecting their one abd only child after many years ,Auntie Annie was too ill by then .
We went to people who were not relatives ,I was lucky and am still in touch
with the daughter of those I lived with my sister not so.
I will try to contact Davidís grandson  just politeness really ,to see if he will make contact.
He is a very nice person.

With Mary and David Blakemore  ,also John,David jun.William and Alfred and at the front Mary and Annie .
