I have just found this website while researching my family tree. My Gt. Grandfather John (Jonty) Roberts married Leah Johnson of Aspull at St Elizabeths and they are both buried there.
John played rugby for Aspull and I have loaded the team picture as my profile picture temporarily until I find out how the site works, plus I thought local people might be interested in seeing it. As you look at the picture, John is second left on the back row with his hand on the chap directly behind the cup.
Leah's parents were beer-sellers/grocers. The other family name that would appear to link to Aspull is Simm.
I was raised in Westhoughton and although I don't live in the area now I still have close links and visit as often as possible.
