my mother's surname was Fellows and also know her family originated from Dudley..I have a few certificates that I will have a look and see what information they give,i dont have access to any burial records unfortunately.
I have watched the first 2 episodes and think the drama has been very good so far,The accents aren't bad but I do seem to hear a bit of scouse coming through now and again,Overall I think its been good for the city that we have a decent drama based here,roll on part 3!
Hi I watched all 5 episodes and generally thought it was quite a good programme.Some of the accents were debatable,the storylines were predictable but overall enjoyed the series,nice to see parts of Brum on tv,will be interesting to see if another series will be commissioned in the future.
We stood talking her for ages and her memory was superb,she also told me she was a member of the local history and there was a possibility that the local school may still have some registers etc, but the primary school reception were less than helpful,but I will contact the history group and see...
Hi I used to live on Vicarage Road from 1960 till 1971,and remember the old police station and the junior school which i attended,I lived in East Terrace,near Victoria Road,I read on the forum there was a map of some courtyards along there,can anybody tell me how to access them.
