Does anyone have any information about this celebrity Ashcroft (see biog below). I was told by my late father's aunt that he was her uncle. Her family were from Salford, but he was born in Chorley (possibly Eccleston?)
My middle name is Ashcroft, as was my father's, he was from Flint in North Wales.
