You are what you feel you are. I was born in a cellar in Cathcart Street, Vauxhall but that makes me no more a Brummie than you are. We are the history of Birmingham and proud of it.

I sometimes feel sorry for members and especially the moderators. Some new members come onto the forum ask a question or two, Members are then looking for answers. If answerer's are found or not you never hear from the original poster again. I will try and help anyone if I can and even go out my way. I know the forum is not compulsory but it would be nice for new posters to stay around for a while. That's it, had my rant in a good way, now back to argumentative townie.     
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Morning Townie
Every day at least one person in Birmingham and the Midlands gets murdered. Are these the ones you refer to who make one post and disappear.
Look after yourself Townie and best wishes.
Gerald.

Hi all. My grandfather lived in Inkerman St, 28 Porchester St and 57 Clifford St Aston between 1887 and early 1900s before joining the Navy. I'd appreciate any info such as photos, old maps or facts as his daughter my Mum is still alive and keen to know more about her roots.
Thanks.
PS his name was William Haywood and his Mum was Louisa Sabin who later married William Rose. My great grandfather also called William Haywood died before my grandfather was born. He was a brass polisher.

Hello

I'm an exiled Brummie who has lived in Yorkshire since 1964. I made sure I married a cook, not a belly dancer!

I was born in Sheldon then my parents bought a fish and chip shop in Ladypool Rd. Sparkbrook and in 1957 I joined the Merchant Navy and 'disappeared' for 8 years.
My parents moved to Wolverhampton in 1959.

I have happy memories of Birmingham particularly Cannon Hill Park, Swanshurst Park and the old Bull Ring.
If at first you don't succeed destroy all evidence you even attempted the task.
