Anyone come from Grimesthorpe? (part3)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. My name is Jean Rhodes I lived at the Sheffield Arms from 1939 until 1951 when we moved to the Admiral Rodney at Loxley. My parents were George and Gerty, on leaving in 1951 my Aunt and Uncle Ada and Cliffe took over the tenancy moving from Huddersfield. Happy times then, much changed now. Went to Owler lane school, headteacher MrGodfrey, I was in Mr Unwin's

Class, left in 1949. Several friends who I can remember Mary Ward, Pauline osbaldistan Jean Parker Victor Peacock and many more.

Look forward to anyone who remembers me, long time ago.

Hello Jean. My name is Ralph Aspinall. We don't know each other but I'm from Grimesthorpe and went to Owler Lane School but probably at a different time to you.

Did Ada later run the Arms with her son Roy?

Hi Raphael,

Nice to hear from you. Yes Aunty Ada and Roy ran the pub after Uncle Cliffe died, he was greatly missed. In 1990 Ada, Roy myself and family all moved to Hathersage Roy died 1994 an Ada lived to 101.

Hello Jean. I've not been called that before, it's a bit posh for a Grimethorpe lad.

Have a look at your emails, I've sent a photo.

I found out the other day that Rene Marriott who was leader of Girls Brigade at Reform Chapel for a time & also organist passed away last week. I think she was in her mid 90's. Yet another Reform Chapel stalwart gone !

RIP
