  1. Thanks for your replies. I havent lived in Sheffield since 1976 & haven't been down past that cemetery since I was a boy in 1950/60's. So its good to know my memory is right !
  2. I seem to remember a Jewish Cemetery on t.h left as you went into Ecclesfield going down from Sheffield Lane Top. Anyone else have memories of it ?
  3. Could you post his Tracer Card on here please? I have never heaard of them before
  4. I went there when it first opened in Sept 1956 . Was in the first 5th form which had 10 girls & 5 boys (inc me). Did RSA School Certificate & left 1960.
  5. Hi Jim, Don't know if you know that Swinden Labs was shut just over a year ago. The staff were supposed to go to a new Lab at Warwick but few, if any, went. I gather application for houses on the site was put in. I don't live in Sheffield now so not seen site for a few years. John
  6. Were you ate Swinden when Roy Gunstone was manager of Welding lab? He was Maanager of Welding lab at ECS when I was there. Can't recall Alan Edwards or Derek Crossland. I spent quit e a lot of time at Swinden in the 1980's & 90's at meetings & with Derek Wake on Quality.
  7. I worked in ESC Welding lab from 1964 until 1967 mostly working on Submerged Arc Cladding & went up to Lab area in Foundry quite a lot. In October 1967 went to work at Bisra Hoyle street then Teesside Labs from 1976. Maybe we know each other? John Moore
  8. Yes - I havent lived in Sheffield since 1976 & havent seen it for some years . It was such agreat sports club back in ESC days & its a shame to see how many of these wonderful facilities have been allowed to go
  9. I think it became a community facility some years ago but cant remember the name
  10. Hade my bachelor night in there in March 1968
  11. Does anyone know if there is available old listings of members of the Clarion Club please? I am interested in John Moore & his sons Arthur, Eric , John, William Leslie & Thomas in period 1928 - 1940. Family legend has it that some of them were involved in the 1932 Mass Trespass of Kinder Scout. Thanks, John
  12. Use free sites such as https://www.freebmd.org.uk/ , https://www.freereg.org.uk/ https://www.familysearch.org/en/home/ Also put on here surnames you are interested in & one of us may have same family. I would be happy to help - send me a PM if interested John
  13. Hi Penny, I have been doing family history & am happy to help but just to be clear about various things - was your mum born Doris Brown & then married a man called Schofield? Was your mum born 1919 or was that someone else ? Are you ************* ? I think your mum married Herbert K Schofield in 1940 in Sheffield. Did Herbert die or were they divorced ? Any idea when your mum & dad married - I can't find a marriage for them. Suggest you contact me at johnpetermoore@sky.com. John
  14. The staff may have gone to Hallamshire or Northern General Hospitals I think depending on their speciality
  15. Hi Bodsy, We went to Bowling Green Street 1 night a week for 1 year for Maths (probably 1st year HNC). My friend who I went with was Ken King ( I am John Moore) & we went right through to HNC together. Another at ESC Research was Paul Haynes. Do those names ring a bell?
  16. My mum Marjorie Moore worked there for quite a few years from 1958 until 1975 when she retired.
  17. Only spoke to Ralph |Aspinall (cat631) 2 weeks before he died & he was fine then. He is a great loss to Grimesthorpe history.
  18. English Steel Corp had a wonderful sports ground on Shiregreen Lane. Cricket, football about 5 tennis courts including one grass & great clubhouse. I played tennis a couple of t imes a weeek there in 1960's. Also has interdepartmental indoor games n ight every year.
  19. If you havent already done so you need to produce a family tree back from yourself. Census returns on ancestry will help also Freebmd for births marriages & deaths? Also look at Sheffield iNdexers which is free .
  20. Sheffield & District Battalion of the BB is still active & has 15 companies. It has a website at http://sheffield.boys-brigade.org.uk/ I recall all prospective 4th District officers had to be interviewed by George Winslow. I remember spending an hour at his house for that around 1962/3 - his house was on Hereward Rd I think.
  21. I went to Hinde House when it opened in September 1956 - then it was a Secondary Modern school. I was in the first group of only 15 to stay in to 5th Year & take RSA School Certificate exam in 1960. Geoff Hook, our form teacher in 4th & 5th year was later Headmaster at Myers Grove I believe.
  22. My wife Chris Moore was on the old ITU at NGH (ward 2a ?) which transferred to a new Cardiothoracic Post Operative ITU around 1970; the Cardiothoracic consultant was Geoff Smith, a really nice man who I think finished up as Cardiothoracic Professor at Guys. Chris was a Sister there until we left Sheffield in 1976.
  23. My gtgrandparents lived at 75 Verdon street in 1881. Prior to that they were at 11 Handley Street which was nearby.
  24. Anything particular you are waanting? I have a map which I think is from around 1950's. I know the area - used to go to Reform Chapel
