Re: Shoulder of Mutton, 6 Cross Edge, Green Haworth

My late father-in-law used to talk about Bunny Barnes. He was a childhood friend of Bunny's son Gilly Barnes and was at Bunny's bedside when he died because the family were too upset to be present.

Re: Greater Accrington Heroes.

Thanks for that.
His brother (my G Granddad) was born in 1901 so was too young to join up. Thomas was born in 1898 so he was only 16.

Re: Kellogg's Cornflake House

When I lived on Broadfield, Ossy the house lower down than ours was said to have been won via Kelloggs. At the time (1980's) a family who had a grocery business on Accy market lived there.

re: St James Church, St James Rd, Church (AKA "Church Kirk Church")

The church is a grade II* (higher status than grade II) listed building so I'd be surprised if it was demolished.
