Apparently, my Grandmother was an orphan who was raised by Nuns at the Convent at Burngreave. That would have been in the late 1800's, early 1900's. Does anyone have any knowledge of how I can get access to the records kept by the Convent, or the Catholic Church?

Yes agree with 'owdsmiffy' I''m from the Burngreave area and that place was in Heeley Bank Road, the Pitsmoor one, perhaps had another name? As for Dr. Leddy, the affable and distinguished Irish gentleman's surgery and home was in the early 60's on Burngreave Road a few houses (and I mean houses!!) up from the Vestry Hall.

Dr Leddy was my doctor for a good many years,

when he was the onley one there.

The correct name was St.Catherine 's  Roman Catholic Convent based at Underwood House (Burngreave Road/Abbeyfield Road). It became a private Catholic junior school -for girls I think-late 1950s,early 60s, and is now a nursing home. As for the two Dr.Leddys (Burngreave Road and Up well Street), they were Dublin born brothers.
