Hiya Mandy I am an ex Gorton Lad  and my piece of advise for what it is worth  is to go on the Gorton web page  of Face book is called Manchester 18 of all places , then there is another site called Knowhere type in Gorton Message board , failing that there is Manmates site run by a fella who lives in Gorton   I'm sure someone went to school with them or even worked with them at some time   They are all worth trying

Hi Cupcake


I checked MEN to 2nd March for a memorial notice but no luck.  Thank you for the suggestion

Ah well, worth a try.....Have you tried to get a copy of the original notice from 2005?  If the MEN can't oblige, then there's probably a library somewhere with back editions of the paper?

Mandy, I came across something that might be useful for you. I've sent you a PM.

I have found Deborah's family, a BIG thank you everyone. xx
Hopefully I will come home to M/C and visit her mum.


I am still looking for Mark. Maybe Debis family will know where he is.

How splendid for you. I am so pleased.  Fingers crossed they have a lead on Mark.  Do feel free to post any clues!   ;)

Anyone remember going to Varna Street School Gortonl in the sixties? l remember the steam trains and walking along the canal at the side of the school to get home to Abbey Hey Lane.l was only about 7 years old. l used to play on the red wreck. Also the famous six weeks walks along Ashton Old Road where we wore long white dresses and flowers head bands if we were lucky to be in THE FIRST SIX!

I didn't live in Gorton but in Hulme and then later Longsight and remember the Whit Week Walks - they were organised by the churches as 'Walks of Witness'. We were a family of 7 children and always had our annual new clothes for the Whit Walks.

Hi
I am looking for 2 special old friends who I lost contact with in the mid 80's -  Deborah Slate and Mark Mckenner who I grow up with until I moved from Gorton to Wales.
We kept in contact with each other until around 1984.
I would dearly love to contact them again and catch up with all the lost years.
Please if you know them, tell them I miss them and ask them to contact me.


Thank you

Would Paul have been a bit younger? I can see a birth for Paul McKenna in Manchester 1964, the only other one is 1959.
