Hi it would have been before 1912,1901 census states they are both carriage wheel makers,goodness I didn’t realise there would be so many,it would probably have been the closet to were they both lived in Kings Norton.
I think it was 2 back of 21,I know the family were very poor,my dad joined the army the day after his 17th birthday,he told me it was the only way he could get a decent set of clothes and decent meals.
