    Harrington marriage

    Hi Lyn, according to FreeBMD the marriage was in the Aston reg district (Sep 1841). Can't find it on Ancestry at all.

    I'll have to ask my mom if she remembers any names. This would have been taken late 40s.

    William Street...Lozells

    Thanks so much for these, my great-grandparents lived on William Street just down from the Gough Arms between at least 1935 and 55, it's wonderful to see how it looked.

    prospect place handsworth

    Hi, I can see it's been a while, but my mom was born at 8 Prospect Place (and she was a Price!). I have a photo of a group of children from the late 40s from that area, if anyone is interested.

    Royal Warwickshire Regiment

    Since my original posting of the photo seems to have disappeared, here it is again. And this is my great-uncle, Harold Francis Griffiths:

    Sherbourne Mill / Baldwin & Sons Paper Mill

    Does anyone have a photo (preferably old) of Sherbourne Paper Mill in Kings Norton? Ideally I'm looking for a 19th century image, but anything will do if it's of the buildings from that period. My great great grandfather William Davis worked and died in an accident there. thanks in advance!

    Price, WW1 photo - Help?!

    That must be him!! He was always down as Harry, even on birth and marriage certs, but maybe the Army assumed it was a nickname! Wow, thanks Suzanne - do you know if the records are on Ancestry... where did you find that?!

    Price, WW1 photo - Help?!

    Thanks everyone. I've already had a look at the Great War forum - I've been posting this photo all over the place in attempts to get some info! The shape of his cap badge does look like the RAMC one... but I've found it also looks like the Army Veterinary Corps one, which would fit in with the...

    Price, WW1 photo - Help?!

    Yep, that's exactly the problem. There are quite a few medal roll cards that could apply to him, but without even knowing what regiment he was in...

    Oh, should probably have said also that he was born in 1879.

    Price, WW1 photo - Help?!

    If anyone could help with this I'd be incredibly grateful. This is my great-grandfather, Harry Price, in his uniform, taken in France in about 1915 or 1916 (so I'm told). The back of the postcard confirms it was French, but there's no stamp or postmark. It was sent to his sister in Rugby. He...
