The Fox public house

Recommended Posts

This week in 'The Star' there was a picture of 'The Fox' public house on Shirland Lane in Attercliffe. I think that in the 1940's or 1950's my paternal grandfather was the landlord there as I can remember family members mentioning the pub's name........Is there any way which I can find out for sure and also how long he stayed there. His name was J.H.Coe.....

Hi 2ndhandrose - I have the Kelly's directories for 1925, 1942 and 1954. The licensee of the Fox House Hotel in Shirland Lane was "Ernest Barnett Stanley" in 1925 and 1942, and "E. Goldsborough" in 1954. Other directories are available at the Local Studies Library in Surrey Street.

Hi......thank you both for the information. Will have to check with family members re. the exact dates my grandfather was in the pub and go from there. Will also visit the library as suggested to try and get to the bottom of my query......As usual Sheffield Forummers have come up 'trumps'. Thanks again....
