When Minnie Caldwell went missing in February 1969, put under pressure by Dave Smith because of a gambling debt she owed him, the residents turned out in force to look for her. Elsie Tanner accompanied Ena Sharples to the snow-covered North Cross Cemetery where Ena wanted to see if Minnie was at Armistead Caldwell’s grave. An Old Man was tending another nearby grave and confirmed that he had seen someone of Minnie’s description there earlier. Ena kindly enquired if the grave that he was at was his wife’s but was told that it was his son’s - he'd been killed in a mining accident at Weatherfield Main.
