Re: diggle. of north west uk
It seems that there's quite a lot of Diggles from the Manchester area. Just a little curious of my family -- I only know of my immediate family.
My dad, 'Kelvin Robert Diggle' was born in the 1940s (I think) in Crumpsall then grew up in Higher Openshaw, later moving to Stalybridge. His parents were 'Mary Diggle' and 'Robert Diggle' -- me being named after my grandfather. He has two sisters, Silvia Diggle (now lives in Bolton) and I can't remember the other one (now lives in Plymouth I think).
I was born and brought up in Ashton-under-Lyne with my two sisters. My dad now lives in Rochdale. I've heard we have relatives in Stalybridge??
