Hi,I used to visit with my mother, some if her family on School Rd.

The girls were called Megan & Sheila. Thinks their surname was Staniforth.

Does anyone know their whereabouts now? Would like to get

Back in touch.

I know I'm YEARS too late, but my name is Nathan Staniforth, I'm the head of the Staniforth Surname society, the Megan and Sheila you mentioned are very distant cousins of mine, they were both the daughters of Eric Levick Staniforth and his wife Connie (nee Booth), I do know Megan married a man named Leslie Hanlon in 1971, not certain on their whereabouts however. My Grandad was Anthony Staniforth born 1942, he had a twin brother Mick and they would knock about in Beighton and Hackenthorpe, their dad was Winsor Staniforth, worked at Brookhouse Colliery. Also if anyone remembers Staniforths Sickleworks on Main St Hackenthorpe, that's my family.

Done some investigation, Megan Staniforth married Leslie Hanlon and they had a son Richard Alexander Hanlon in 1979 and it looks like the three were actually living together as late as 2002 in the S21 postcode (Public info from 192.com)

I knew a "little" Ronnie Cooper from Beighton many years ago..he used to come up to the Waleswood at Walesbar had many a pint with him...a mate who also knows/knew him said he had seen him in York and he had a pub there...but this was a few years ago.....
