Hi Edmund, none of those names sound familiar, as Mom and Dad moved out to Castle Bromwich, the only times i visited the Glebe was when we went to Doctor Sharma's surgery or to see my Nan Tonks in Kirkham Grove bungalows.

As soon as I saw the surname Musson, I wondered if a girl I knew of called Hillary Musson, could possibly be a relative?

Hello. I moved to lapley grove in 1981 I was seven at the time. I moved into a maisonette and across the grove were a low level block of flats. Does Lapley grove still exist? I cannot find it on google maps. I remember playing fields at the back of the grove and going shopping in the village. I went to Ridpool school. I was only in lea village about a year and then moved to Bordesley green. I remember some of the kids but non of the surnames. I am scrolling through the forums hoping to make a connection. ::)

Hi Kat. You must remember families as the Collin's, Bagshaw's, Sales? Do you also remember Brian who had learning difficulties who lived at the top of Lea Ford road always stood at on the corner.
