The Electoral Register for West ward, which contained far more green fields than today.

The final sheet lists miscellaneous names including Charles Leach. Leach was later to become the Liberal MP for Colne Valley. He holds the ‘distinction’ of being the only MP to be unseated on the grounds of insanity. A sad end to a good man. His grave can be found at the Bethesda graveyard.
