Hello everyone. A family member has been looking for many years for a DEREK HARDING  (Sp) in the hope he can resolve some family issues. He did at one time live with a KEITH and MAGGIE BANKS. This would have been in the very late '70's or early 80's. It is possible that at one time he did work as an ice-cream man. Obviously I am being a little candid with information but he will recognise the names I am sure. Here's hoping. Many thanks. Bookworm.

Hi I'm new here!.


My dad, George Frederick Harris is originally from Birmingham. He lived at Brookbank Avenue, Shardend, Birmingham (moved to Newry, N.Ireland late 60s) His parents were Harry and Beatrice Harris. Did anyone know my dad and/or his family?. I think a neighbour that lived next door to them were The Coopers.


Many thanks in advance.


Miss Andrea Harris

Hi everyone, does anyone remember Steven Waldron who lived in a block of flats near the gladiator pub maningford  road , druids heath in the 70s ? He had a wife Joan and a baby girl named Esther..? He is my brother whom I lost contact with in 1986. Desperate to find out anything about him so I may be able to find him or at least find out what he did etc. Thank you for any information at all.x

From records I see that Steven was actually Stephen L  Waldron and he married a lady called Johanna A Rohan and they had a daughter Esther in 1974.
Electoral rolls show Johanna A Waldron and Esther Waldron on rolls from 2002 to 2018 I haven't got full subscription so I can't access address but I believe it may be Sandwell.

Hi , I am sorry that it was the wrong one, my husband was registered  Stephen but  friends call him Steve.


The records for the one I gave you are for a Stephen L Waldron registered by Leonard and Janet(nee Slim) his siblings on record
Robert, Mark ,Lynne and Julia A.


Sorry i have been unable to find a Steven Waldron on records.

Hi All


Iím hoping that this friendly and informative forum can come to the rescue again.


Iím helping a dear friend who would like to know more about her late father, Jimmy Reynolds.


Jimmy or James was an Irish builder who resided in Alum Rock during the 50ís then moved to a road just off Slade Road, Aston in the 60ís where he lived until his passing in the 90ís.


Jimmy was a builder by trade, and worked on many projects in and around Birmingham during his time.


Can anyone help with memories, pictures etc.


Thank you
