Hi Carole, It was nice to get a reply from you so soon. My relationship to Charles Abram is via my Grandfather who would have been his cousin, hence making me his 2nd cousin once removed. The relationship is still tentative, however, from my research it would appear to be substantiated with the evidence gained from census records.
If your Grandfather lived at 171 Park Road would this have been in Hindley, which is where my grandfather settled in the 1920s. In fact in Lord Street which is off Park Road.
Unfortunately I no longer live full time in Wigan, but my mother, sister and other relatives still live in the area of Hindley.
Will try to verify the connection as soon as possible.
