    Thanks but I was hoping Phil might have had the original print and could scan or re-scan at a higher resolution. I'd like to print it off for my elderly father to see which would require something significantly bigger but thanks again for trying.

    Trying to identify a workplace for my grandfather in the 1960s. All I have to go on is that he worked for a Wire Galvanisers on the corner of Lander Street. Can anybody help identify who that might be ?

    Hey Phil, I would LOVE a copy of that photo as my parents house is just out of shot to the left and my father still talks about this raid. Any chance you can send me a decent sized copy somehow (not sure how you do that on here). Any help appreciated !

    Crocketts Road, Handsworth 1901

    I'm trying to find out anything about 116 Crocketts Road, Handsworth in and around 1901 when the census shows a William Howell present as a "coal dealer and greengrocer" although I believe it was owned and run by John Howell. Does anybody have access to any records or trade directories that...

    Young William (1860 - 1916)

    Okay - many thanks - my positivity meter has swung a notch in the right direction !!! What about the first born to William and Elizabeth. She was born Ellen but was known as Nellie by a living relative a few years back. I've tended to find most first born females take the name of either the...

    Young William (1860 - 1916)

    This is a "definite maybe" but I can't find anything that tips the scales denitely one way or another. The biggest issue I'm currently having is that on William (b1860) and Elizabeth's marriage certificate of 1883, William lists his father William Snr as a "carter" whereas the Redmarley William...
