Hi does anyone remember the massive fire at Firth browns

one summer we had been to skegg it must have been the works weeks and when we got back Carlisle st was closed off  and firth browns was destroyed 

Perhaps Firth- Brown's wasn't totally destroyed but there was some serious damage to their premises on Carlisle Street East between Newhall Road and Garter Street, the part opposite the Alex I think.

Hi all   I lived in Botham Street in the  forties & fifties  the Walshshaws  was 2 girls & 2 boys the other girl was called Barbara. I remember the Butlers  Johnny the father use to organise street games  after the Grimesthorpe Feast Walk

This is not the Butler family I've been referring to.  The Butler family I am related to lived on Crown Hill.  I don't think that was the real name, just called that because of the pub.There was Mum Pat Wilson (nee) Dudley, she was divorced from Eddie Butler, who she had 2 children with, my cousins Stuart and Angela (Angie).  She was by then married to Roland Wilson.  This must have been around the end of the 60's

Jane,as mentioned earlier in this thread,there were loads of Butlers scattered around Grimesthorpe ,but i'm sure they wer'nt all related to each other.Your right ,it was referred to as Crown Hill.I remember Pat getting married to Roland,and after that he decided to park his car in our yard,that put a bit of a dampner on our cricket and football games.Angela and my sister were always doing there skipping thing !! one day they rigged a swing up and within a few minutes my sister fell off and broke her arm.

Sorry. no I don't .  I remember as a child going to my Aunty Pat  and Uncle Rolands.   You won't have any reason to remember me.

 

My Dad Mick Dudley lived, I think next door to them.  My Nannan and Grandad May and Bill Dudley also lived there.

Remember your dad Jane didn't he work on the buses,not seen your Aunt Pat for a long time.I lived on Hunsley St so knew family.
