Great Francis St
« on: June 06, 2020, 11:34:41 AM »
I was born at 200 great Frances St Duddeston mill My grandfather had the buchers shop next to the train pub, My uncle worked at Guys brewery( bottling plant) & went to Loxton St school
I am told that when we moved out for the flats to be built (Melvina Rd) an unexploded bomb
was found under our house but can not fined any information Help
This has all come about due to sort out my family tree.
