Abt, thankyou. I was gobsmacked when I read your message. Yes I know I had an uncle Vincent. I was born in Boldmere Rd., I think my grandmother lived there.


How did you know the Ottaways? Do you have any more information.


I await your reply with much interest.

Does anybody know of the pilmer family in sparkbrook ? The father was a caretaker in an old junior school in sparkbrook. Can't remember the name of the school. I new the family around about 1975/ 76. They had a teenage son named Gary and a younger daughter living at home.  This is a bit of a stab in the dark as I don't remember much.

Hi my name is Paul Locking and I was born in Birmingham in 1961. I lived at 39 Longstreet, Sparkbrook 11. My mother apparently left when I was born so I have never met my mother or my father. She was married to a William Locking and I was left with him but he was not my biological father. He died when I was 17years old. Does anyone know my mother who is Edith Rose Locking (previously Holland)? If so I would be greatful for any help in trying to find my biological parents. Thankyou

Paul Locking,
Get in touch with the Birmingham Juvenile court give them the surnames and addresses and I think they will be able to help you.
