Re: Beryl Ingham

This posting has pleased me no end. My grandma's husband, killed in the Great war, lived at 17 alliance Street and in Mill Street before that, he was seven when Beryl was biorn, but I feel sure that he and his parents/siblings would know the Inghams .Father of that family was a born and bred Basher. He could even have supped in The Welcome in Elephant Street whilst young Beryl and her sister May were practising their dancing upstairs.
I wonder why my grandma never told me that George's wife was an Accy girl. That's another question I will be asking her when I see her again. I have realised that my grandma would have answers to all the family history questions I have got stored up.

Re: Beryl Ingham

Remember Beryl, comming to the Moorcock( when I worked there in the 60s ), for lunch a few times after George had died, she was a very stern woman, not inclined to smile much. Mind you in the 60s the Moorcock was the place to be seen if you had brass, James Mason, Rodger Moore, plus a few other celebs, went there plus most of Coronation St, of that time went there. Dont suppose its like that now, havent seen it for 40 odd yrs.

Re: Beryl Ingham

Can anyone point me to any movies she was in ?
I know she was a dancer, maybe a singer too....?
perhaps she is immortalized on film somewhere ?

Boot Boots and Off the Dole both of which are available on DVD. You can also see her on the DVD Life & Wartimes of George Formby which is interesting. Happy days!

When I saw this thread and realised it was opened by the late Westender it made me think of members who are no longer with us but so very sadly missed

There's a photograph of Beryl Ingham, and her sister May, as The Two Violets, on this site.

Sheila Khan's Family Tree

Is says on there that her father was the landlord of the Black Bull in Darwen.

On some biographical sites her birth's given as Accrington, or Haslingden. But that's probably just where her birth would have been registered.

Re: Beryl Ingham

Beryl the wife and manager of George Formby was seen at a special 80th anniversary film screening of 'Boots Boots' in Warners Accrington last week. The film was George and Beryl's first 1934 feature film produced by Mancunian Films and it was quite a night!
The film is available restored on DVD by the way..
