Duerden family of Nelson, Lancashire

  of 52

Does anyone know of my great grandfather, James (Jim) Duerden of Nelson and his family? He would have been born around 1886 and died in 1971. He married Florence Elliott and had 2 daughters, Alice and Minnie. Alice married Richard Arnold and had a son, John Richard (who drowned) and a daughter Betty. Minnie married Raymond Ainsworth and had a son, James Roy (my father) before getting divorced and re-marrying William Wood, an engine driver. Raymond emigrated to either Australia or New Zealand just before the last war.
James Duerden owned 'James Duerden Textiles Ltd.' of Nelson and as far as I know he was born in Nelson too.
Does this ring any bells with anyone? I hope so. Nick Ainsworth, France.
