  2. Hello All Can anyone remember where Sheaf Avenue was? I am tracing my roots and discovered my aunt was living on Sheaf Avenue when she died. We cannot find Sheaf Avenue on any current map. Would appreciate any help. Bethany 1 from cold and snowy Pennsylvania.
  3. It would be interesting to hear from you. Bethany1
  4. Dear Susiewusie I went o Darnall Church school in the 40's. It was a terrible experience. The teacher wore mens ties and boots and was nasty to me. I refused to go to school and the truant man came to call. He threatened to put me up a telegraph pole and feed me bread and water if I did not go back to school. I can see him now leaning over the counter of our shop telling me this ( I was five years old at the time) My mother told him where to get off and transferred me to another school. where I did very well. Could hardly believe you were talking of the same school.
  5. That should keep me busy for a while. Thank you again Hillsboro

  8. Does anyone know of a George Froggatt? born 1930 in Sheffield to a George and Mary Froggatt. His mother was my fathers sister. I know little more of them except that they lived in Franklin Street and then moved to the Woodthorpe area. Would appreciate any help,. Bethany1
  9. Hello Tinkys I worked at The Grove as a housemother during the time you mention. I do believe that I remember your mother and sister and brother. They were a very close loving little family. The older girls really looked out for their little brother- particularly the older one- she was a little mother. When I tucked Carl in bed at night he was in a room by himself . The bigger boys were in a different room. I was well aware that after I turned the corner of the landing his big sister would creep into his room and stay with him until he was asleep. I left The Grove for further education and they were still there at that time. Over the years I often wondered what happened to them. The Grove was a reception center and a first class one. Mr Siddall saw to that. He took very good care of the children placed in his care. On breakfast duty one morning I got a scolding from Mr Siddall because a slice of toast was, in his opinion burned and, no child at the Grove ate burnt toast. I sure learned the workings of that toaster in a hurry! Tinkys they were lovely children, and, after all these years I remember them with fondness. Bthany1
