  1. Dear Val Hala, I do realise that you may have been VERY busy since you first offered more info and photo's regarding the - Attercliffe Dolphins, I am still interested in The Attercliffe Dolphins as I might find images / info about my Grandmother or Mum. So if you do have the time to sort somethings out for me I'd be VERY grateful if you could email them to me at - rcs1966@hotmail.com Yours Sincerely James
  2. I was hoping someone could send me or tell me weather or not they got scared into not doing something for the fear of Obe Dyer coming to get them? It was a fear that went through our family as kids, but I just wanted to know weather or not it was part of Sheffields Myths & Ghost Stories. Any help would gratefully be received. Sincerely James
  3. Dear Val Hala, YES I am still interested in The Attercliffe Dolphins and if you have any photos I'd be VERY grateful if you could email them to me at - rcs1966@hotmail.com Yours Sincerely James
  4. Does anyone have any photos of their days at Browne Bayleys ?? - It'd be nice to see how it really was back in the day.
  5. Does anyone remember anything about Lily Agnes & James Arthur ( lucky Jim ?? ) Tacey, that lived on the corner of Alfred their back yard entrance was on Alfred Road.
  6. Hi Ya Pigeon, Are you sure it was Alan Scarborough Norman knocked around with ?? Could it have be Len Scarborough ?? As i have no refferences to a Alan Scarborough in our family and Terry Scarborough's family moved to York many years ago. Sincerely Jamesh2o
  7. Dear Brian, Depending on where abouts Berth lived depends on where she might have been put to rest. There is City Road Cemetary / Burngreave Cemetary / Tinsley Cemetary and ST Lawrence Cemetary ( these are the ones i know of ). Here's an idea if Bertha's daughter has the correct date of death she'd be able to check out the Sheffield Archives or The Sheffield Star Archives too, to be able to see the Obituary & possibly where the funeral was to take place and at what time. I hope this helps! James
  8. GREAT story BillKitson, It's so nice to get a real insight to what life was like on those wonderful Attercliffe streets, when the community was a REAL community. It's such a shame that when the powers that be decided to move everyone out of the ( what they called the slums ), into better housing they didn't think of keeping everyone together rather than scattering them all to the four winds. They also did it again in the 1980s after they decided to do the same to the Manor Estate were we moved to after Attercliffe, now all the Estate was destroyed and left for years being waste land and now having expensive housing association built in their place. Please keep the indepth truthfull stories coming! James
  9. Hi Ya E5006368 ??, Thanks for the memory - My Uncle Johnny ( Jack ) lives in Parsons Cross with his wife Pat. My Dad Roy died in 1994 - Charlie the eldest died in 1990 in Middlewood Hospital and Len & Brian died in the early 1990s. Therefore there's only Marie / Terry & Frank sit living, as for Anne she was Brians twin Sister who died at birth. It sounds as if you had a wonderful life when you were younger, do you by any chance have any old photos of that time and if you wish i can forward onto you Uncle Johnnys ( Jacks ) address & number if you wanted to meet up again to talk about old times. Sincerely James

  15. Hi Ya Sheffield Forum, I am trying to locate information about my family and this information has led me to this information which i need help with - My Grandmother Mary Clarke Sharrock was born in 1910 and i have been told her Father was a Priest called Ethalred ( surname unknown ), her mother was Susannah Sharrock ( Born 1870 ).
