    Hi Beverleigh,
    I'm sending this in the hope that you might get it. I'm researching the Greyhound in Court Lane and wondered if you could get in touch please. I read your post about research in Sutton Library and I'm not having a lot of success. Thanks in advance.

My mother was Stella Faulkner who lived in Ladywood until 1950 I think Her father was Ernest Faulkner lived in Springfield Street & died in 1950. Her siblings were, Lucy , Walter, Harry & Leslie & step brother, Dennis Sullivan who joined the RN in Plymouth. It would be great if anyone remembers them. Many thanks Sue Chapman
