In 1939 Ada and Richard are at 1/135 Mary Street. Richard is a night watchman.
Richard died in 1949 and in 1950 Ada is living at 1/139 Mary Street.

Hi Alberta, thank you for your reply, my mumís mum lily Taylor was born in yardley road and her father Douglas congdon in great brook street I think. They married in Birmingham and my mum was born there. Sadly she died a couple of months after my mum was born. That was 1947. She remembers visiting the Pelham Arms alum road up until the age of 14, to visit her auntie Winnie and uncle George who were Publicans. She seems to think they then moved to the white horse or white lion but cannot quite remember.
Your help is really appreciated

Hi Alberta, wow your email is fantastic. It is the Taylor side I am looking for. My mum remembers Florence and she seems to remember 2 children Edna & Davis.


If you could also find out any more information on the Davis side that would be fantastic.
My mum was brought up by Alexandra after her mum Lily died and is desperate to know about her mum as nothing was ever mentioned to her. Once again Thank you for all your help, :)
