The Leigh Group, formed in 1982, is one of the six groups of the Liverpool and South West Lancashire Family History Society. Meetings are held in the Derby Room at Leigh Library throughout the winter months.  These are held on the third Tuesday of each month except July, August and December, and start at 7.30 pm, but a Help Desk is available from 7.00 pm

Our meetings usually have a family history related speaker but members are always able to browse and borrow books from the Group's library.

We have recorded Monumental Inscriptions at the following churches and cemeteries

  •        Abram St. John's
  •        Golborne St. Thomas's
  •        Westleigh St. Paul's
  •        Lowton St. Mary's
  •        Ashton-in-Makerfield St. Thomas's, Warrington Road and Heath Road
  •        Leigh Cemetery
All the above are available on CD from the shop. The MIs for most of Leigh Cemetery are now available at Leigh Local Studies Section.
