Just found out my grandfather lived there also! At no.13. Do you know which number? His name was Herbert Stallard. Any relation?



Found out my Grandfather lived in Adrian Cottages which were off Kings Heath High street, and I believe they were in the region of the old picture house facing Grange road (where the family moved in in 1914 īsif anybody got any photos of this area in nthe 1900īs or photos of said Cottages /road[/font]

Hello!


I am looking for anyone with any knowledge of anyone who lived in a house of multiple occupancy/ boarding house in the 1940s through to 1972ish when it was knocked down to make way for a new estate.
The address was - 30 Wheeleys Road, Edgbaston. I am looking for any information at all about Oliver Watson (my grandfather) who lived there at least for the years above. We do not know where he went after that.
Any information about anyone else who lived there that may have known Oliver would also be useful as we have practically zero information about him.


Thank you in advance

One adult with each group of children, two tables, 2 metres apart, problem solved. Possibly the landlord did not want a load of kids running round so he used the regulations as an excuse.

Stupid people, if they'd got any sense, they would have rolled up in two separate groups.
As I understand it 7 of the group were children and they tried to sit in the Garden and offered to split up on to two different tables.

Covid takes it's toll. Family of 9 ( all from same household) asked to leave Brummie Boozer. Regulars at The Baldwin were asked to leave after arriving mob handed at The Baldwin in Hall Green. May sound a bit heavy handed but rules am rules only 6 allowed.  At least the Gaffer is sticking to the rules and avoiding a Ģ6400 fine.
