    Hi my name is karen my dads family was all from duki and i unfortunately didnt get the chance to know him properly before he sadly passed i would love to see some pictures of him as i think hes on a few and im sure my aunties are too there names are:
    william cowgill
    Kathleen cowgill
    Gladys cowgill
    Geoffrey walsh
    my grandmas name was also Gladys cowgill and my grandads name was also william cowgill they lived on boyds walk i believe not 100% sure on that fact thank you for any help

    • William lived on Montrose Ave for a while , Geoffery Walsh lived on Brice street when he died I worked with him for a bout 15 years at Adamsons ,there are photos of them in my collection I will try to pick some out not many .

    • Judith Chilton says:

      In the 1950s your family lived in Montrose Avenue for a few years.From about 1953 to 1956 or so and may well have moved to Boyds Walk after that.My family lived next door at no. 10 and your family at no 11.I was a child but remember Kathleen and William (Bill) and young Gladys. My family name was Normington.

      • We lived on Rothesay Ave Judith , Katheleen William and Gladys were the Cowgills , John Normington the actor lived on Montrose. where do you live now .

      • Judith Chilton says:

        John Normington the actor was my brother.He went to Crescent Rd school and later to The Northern School of Music.He worked mostly for The National Theatre and RSC but never forgot his Dukinfield roots.He sadly died 10 years ago.My sister Lesley and myself followed him to London in the 1960s and I now live in Twickenham.Still love Dukinfield.I was shocked to find St Lukes church closed!! What happened there?

      • people stopped using it, a church group are looking to turn it into flats , the small community building at the sidle is still in use . I live on Rothesay Ave and my wife Joan on Innverness road , last saw your brother many years ago must have been in the 1960s walking down innverness road

  3. Hilda D. Cambareri nee Hilda doran says:

    I like this web site very much. Hoping to use it to connect with people I knew in the fifties and early sixties.

    • Rev. Oliver Skelly says:

      I think you taught me in Saint Mary’s Dukinfield in 1963. I lived at 4 Old Road with my mother and sister Mairead.

      • Hilda D. Cambareri nee Hilda doran says:

        Dear Father Oliver,Of course I remember you and your mother and sister. I have a mental picture of you as a young boy. I also have pictures from when you were in my class. You may know Father Gregory Downing. He was in my class at St. Mary’s when we were both 10. I taught his younger brother Leo. Leo has lived in Canada for many years like me and we just went to visit him in August. I think that your mother went to live in Ireland when she retired. My mother knew your mother and her family from when they were young. My sister Susan was a friend of (your cousin, I think) Margaret Brookes. Where is your ministry now? Are you in England? Where is Mairaid now?I hope all is well. I will give you my e-mail . It is cambareri1@sympatico.ca. I would love to hear from you and perhaps exchange pictures both old and recent. Thank you for contacting me. Hilda Cambareri nee Doran.

      • Dear Father Skelly, Did you get my reply to your question? Hilda ( Doran) Cambareri

  4. Hilda D. Cambareri nee Hilda doran says:

  8. David Dawson says:

    Great photos and many old faces to remember. Any more photos of Old Hall and Newton Wood. We are desperate for photographs of Victoria Road School which stood opposite Wood Street War Memorial. Also photos of Globe Lane tin school which became Woodmet. Photos of any former pupils of Globe Lane. These are needed by the Globe Lane Pals Historical Society.

  9. DR Potts says:

  10. Hilda D.(Doran) Cambareri says:

    I live in Canada and love to look at pictures of Dukinfield. I ’twas a good place to grow up.Hilda

    • Frank Hardicre says:

      Hello
      Are you the same Hilda who lived with brother Bobby and Mum on Thorncliffe Avenue. I am Frank Hardicre who lived at No 49. It was a great place to grow up despite the hardships of the war years. Leave a message on my Facebook page.

      • Ted Day says:

        Hi. I lived at no 19 Thorncliffe,Ted Day.I remember playing many games with you on the area next to the nursery. You were the only one who had a proper set of wickets. Next door was Una Dickinson who sometimes played with Hilda Doran. Are you going to the old nursey building on the 21st & 22nd of Feb it’s Globe Lane pals from 10.00 to 4.00pm both days.

      • yes I will be attending with Joan .

      • Hello TeddyThat’s what we called you then all those years ago. Cricket was my consuming passion then and still remains today. You say “wickets”.shame on you, They are stumps.I remember you as a wicked spin bowler brought about by our composition ball which became oval after prolonged use and went off in many different directions even at right angles on occasions. We were both members of Ducky C.C.  I longed to play for the club but never made it as I believe you did, ( thanks to my tuition and provision of the oval ball). Do you remember the framed scorecard above the pavilion bar boasting that Ducky bowled out Preston for 2 runs.  Tough times  as young kids but very happy with lots of mates.Regret that I won’t be able to attend the reunion but wish you all well.Kindest regardsFrank Hardicre

      • Hilda D. Cambareri nee Hilda doran says:

        Yes that is me. I remember your family name but I think you were older than me. Maybe younger. I remember Teddy Day also.
