My first wife, her parents and sisters/brother  lived on Beaumont Way possibly no 3 from about early to mid 1950's

 

Parents were Fred and Doris Turner - son was Brian, daughters were Christine (Married Denis Phoenix), Barbara (Married Roy Turton), Elaine (Married Ray Severns from Woodhouse) and youngest Margaret who I married in July 1963 - she will be about 77 now, 78 in October her friend lived close by - Valerie ??? - about same age - married a guy by the name of Les possibly in 1962

 

Maybe someone will remember them

Has Alan Dagnall died? He used to live next to my sister on Stoneciliffe Road, the Dolbys. Jimmy Noonan lived just across from me on Harborough Avenue, I remember his Irish grandfather too, he spoke with such a heavy brogue I couldn't understand him, what happened to Jimmy? I can remember him starting work on the railway.

I remember Denis Phoenix, I knocked about with his brother Terry for a while, just what happened to them and their sisters Eunice and Carol! Oh yes Terrys brother Derek too.

Yes Denis was a nice guy, lived at Darnall when I first knew him, his wife Christine worked at a dry cleaning shop along Staniforth Road. They had a son, Phillip who will be around 65/66 now

 

They moved from Darnall to a council house somewhere nearer to Handsworth but after all the years I cannot remember the name of the road/area, may have been at the rear of the Remploy factory ?? - Christine's father Fred lived somewhere near to them after moving from Beaumont Way around mid to late 1970's 

 

Denis was a bus conductor of course and I seem to recall that he had a part time job at one of the main pubs near the main traffic lights . Around mid to late 1970's he then went to work at the Old Crown pub at the top of Handsworth  

 

Cannot remember when he died but maybe early 1980's - I started to lose contact with the family about 1978 at the time I was getting divorce from my, then wife, Margaret Turner

 

When visiting my parents place every 2/3 weeks (Victor and Jessie Hutchinson at Crest Motors and Shell petrol station at the top of Handsworth - next to Turf Tavern) I sometimes saw Philip when he called for petrol, but the last time would have been 1983/4

 

My other friends in the area were Denis Hobson, Harry Hodges, ??? Sorby,  Malcolm B.... ???  who had a joinery company and few others - we usually met in the Turf Tavern or the White Rose for a few drinks

 

Best Wishes - Victor (Marshall Hutchinson) - Malaysia

Alan Dagnall is very much alive although not in the best of health.  I can probably put you in touch. PM me if you want to. I won't be available for a couple of weeks but I'll pass any messages on after that.
