    Aston Terrace Swallownest

    Hi, I have found out that I had a Gt Aunt, who lived at Aston Terrace. Her name was Mary Farrand, and she married Thomas Westrop. Her sister lived there too. They were called Ellen or Nellie and Fred Marsh. I would love to know if any of their families still live in the Swallownest area

    Beaver Hill School '88

    Hi, I left in 1958, and my last teacher was Mr Watson. At that time there was Miss Hibbard, Miss Lilley ( art) Mrs Walsh (music.) Mr Bailey, Mr Price (PE) Mr Dayble (RE) Mr Richarson, Mr Griffiths (metalwork) Mr Jeeves Mr Squires. These are the ones that I can remember the most. Yes I can remember the ones that you have mentioned too. Long time ago now, but clear in my mind!

    Missing Ginger cat - woodhouse s13

    Hello,can you give a better description of your ginger cat please. I have had a very thin ginger cat visiting my garden for the last three months now.My neighbour and I started feeding him about a month ago, and he looks a lot better than he did.
  8. I worked in the offices on Paternoster Row. Lovely place to work, but the wages were low. I worked in the Punch Card room...really enjoyed my time there.

    Pavillion Swallownest

    Hello Victor, This thread is nothing about the Pavilion, but you seem to have lot's of knowledge about old Swallownest! I am researching my family tree, and have hit a brick wall. I remember as a child in the 50's, my parent's visiting a bungalow, either on Manvers Rd, or Eden Grove. The relation was my mum's. I think she was called Edna...her parents were Fred and Ellen Marsh, and lived at Aston Terrace (now demolished) I think they were called Smith, and had a Polish lodger living with them called Tony. He was a miner ! Hopefully you might just remember something about them. Cal.

    Christian family from attercliff.

    Hi, He won't probably remember me. I was Carole Crookes...I married Mick Lambert. I think they were in the same class at Beaver Hill. He might remember that we were going out together at school. Sadly Mick passed away nearly four years ago now.I still see quite a few of the old faces up here.

    Christian family from attercliff.

    We had a Walter Christian in our class at Beaver Hill School. He came from Attercliffe.
  14. I first heard this when I met my husband (Mick Lambert) way back in 1957. I thought it was just the Woodhouse folk that said it.

Getting made up for New Year by your grandad...alias...Al Jolson Boxing in the yard with Trevor Linley. My name is Jim Marsden. Happy Days !!!
