Dawes Cycles Ex- Employees

Good evening from Malta


Re: Dawes Cyles employees 1962 to 1966


My dad used to work for Dawes Cycles in B'Gham. He is 78.  He had a work mate named Wilson (not sure if it was a name or a surname). They used to call him Bill and lived or worked in Balsall Heath. I believe he possibly owned an Anglia car back then.  He would be around 80 years now.


My dad lost touch with this gentleman. Any help in locating him is appreciated.


Thank you

Looking for any information on Wilkie Houghton.  Passed away in 2004 I believe.

I am a family researcher and I'm searching for a person that worked at Highcroft Hospital, Erdington around 1968, and lived at the nurses home Highcroft. I would be very interested in hearing from any other staff working at Highcroft in the same era.

Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and hopefully this goes better than the last forum that I tried to post!  I am researching my family history and I have a DNA match around 200cm with a lady with the surname of "Burrows".  Her father was Reginald Burrows and her mother was Sheila Burrows (nee Crees).  Reginald was 17 years old and Sheila was 16 at the time of marriage and Reginald's address was listed as 121 Park Road, Hockley, Birmingham, England.  I'm trying to expand this portion of the tree to hopefully intersect with other DNA matches in other trees, so the question for the forum is as follows:

Does anyone remember, have any information, or any pictures on the occupants of 121 Park Road in the mid 1950s to mid 1960s?  Using the electoral registry information, the occupants were likely:

Edith Burrows (Reginald's mother), Arthur Edward Burrows (Reginald's older brother), Barbara Burrows (Reginald's sister who later lived at 121 Park Road with her husband Samuel Everett), Ronald Burrows (Reginald's brother). James Watson (Reginald's future Step-Dad)

Barbara Everett (Reginald's sister), Samuel Everett (Barbara's husband), Denise and Tracey Everett (possibly twins), and Sharon Everett.

Thanks in advance for any help!
