  • Did anyone know Majorie Rigg who worked at the Co-op Loftus, I worked with her but lost contact!

    Is the dates on this photo correct? I think Majorie Rigg is my Granny (Margret Widass nee Rigg) younger sister.
    If it is she married in 1944 to Frank Jacques and moved to Bulmer

    Hi Keith, Thank you for replying. Do you have any more information about Majorie? Who her parents was or if she had any siblings? I’m very curious to no if this could be my Granny’s little sister. Thanks Vicci
