I think he was, because his brother Sam lived next door to me and he was from Grimesthorpe. I think Ken also ran the pub on Derbyshire lane after that and one on the Kelvin before that. If it is the same man.

The reason I asked, 'Mr.K' is that in the Ellesmere Youth Club. (Buckenham Street ) Some of us met a lad in 1961 who said he was from the Botham Street area, when asked his name. he said it was 'Sam' (which it wasn't) and I think he would have been around fifteen at the time, He was a thick set lad as a youth and tho' quiet and polite, nobody messed with him.
