    Can anyone tell me if Freda Harrison and Bill (Lemon) Harrison were in any way related to Minnie Harrison who lived; I think in the row of houses opposite the Chippie at Carlin how? My Mam was Elsie Harrison (becoming Elsie PLEWS of Liverton Mines).

    Bill was the son of Edward and Mary Harrison. He had 2 Brothers Albert (Died in Belgium 1945) and John. Also a Sister Eileen who also died aged 14 during WW2 of TB. (Or so I am told). I remember that his Mum Mary had a companion called Min / Minnie who lived with her in Coronation St. After the death of Mary then Minnie lived in the house for a while but eventually moved to Mount Pleasant old folks home in Marske
