Melvin Ashton's Weddings
My first wife - Megan (Meg) Ashton ...
I married my first wife, Meg Ashton on 1st August, 1964.
We first met at Alwyn Isherwood Ltd. in Barnsley in 1969 where I had been transferred from the Wakefield service department to take charge of the new 'Tube Factory' (Alwyn Isherwood Electronics Ltd. (new window)
Meg and I were married for some 25 years but were divorced in October, 1989 following marital problems.
Sadly, we had no family but
treated my sister Doreen Squires's, (now Wilkinson, nee Ashton),
children - Julie Hart, (nee squires), Leanda Taylor, (nee Squires),
and Nigel Squires as 'our children - it was great taking them on
holiday but 'convenient' to return them to their parents on return !
