  1. who is Frank and where would I find him my dad and his brothers were in Fulwood not exactly sure of the year but they were their a while so I'm led to believe would love to find out more
  2. Brian was you in no6 the same time as my Dad Alfred Thomas I also think his brothers were in there too
  3. WOW That is so interesting Moirahyde, where have you found that and does it tell you anymore, I'm a bit behind time when it comes to searching back like this but I am in your debt for just highlighting this lol cheers I take it with the Mention of Mary she must have been the first born at Windmill lane because my mum is the oldest and she was born in Attercliffe this I'm quite sure off once again thank you
  4. could be a possibility Hibbsy, thanks for that, I wish I could be in contact with my Dads side of the family but sadly most of them have passed away, I know too 2 step brothers but I'm not sure if they are still with us, I'd like to thank you again for the input and maybe one day I will get a bit more of an insight cheers
  5. Hello It's me again, I found a little bit of interest regarding my Grand parents old shop on Victoria road (Woodhouse) so now I want to try and trace my Mums side and any one who knew her or about her family, My Mum who was born Elizabeth Edith Bond, I believe she was born in Attercliffe some where, my Nan and Granddad where called Alice May Bond, and Clifford Bond, my Granddad sadly passed away before I was born, the rest of my mums family consisted of another 2 sister's Mary and Kathleen, and then 5 brother's Clifford, Frank, John, Richard, Eric was the youngest they moved away from Attercliffe when my mum was quite young around the age of 4, I'm going to hazard a guess that this was because of the slum clearance, they moved on to the newly formed Flower Estate, Windmill lane to be exact, if any one knows of her or her family it would be great to hear from you and try and get an insight on how things were in the past cheers
  6. Hiya not really sure of the timings, I was a toddler I was born in 1964, I was walking so I will hazard a guess of around 1968/69, I think Grandad Roe had the shop before meeting my Nan, coz he was my dad's stepdad, cheers for the info Hiya Cheers for that matey, as I said I was a toddler but I know it was a house they had, the Maggotts were outside in what looked like the old Lavvy, I remember collecting them in the maggot boxes as they came in for them any more would be greatly appreciated cheers
  7. I'm looking for any Pictures or posts from any one that remembers my Granddads old shop in Woodhouse it was on or on the corner of Victoria road/street, His surname was Roe, the shop sold a variety of things, ie food sweets and also fishing tackle I remember the maggots in an old tin bath out back, I was very young the last time I visited, so any memories would be greatly appreciated thank you
