    Nightingale/Nightengale, Charles and Abigail

    Thank you very much indeed for your time and efforts. Your help is invaluable. It had never entered my head to look at the children's baptism records. I have posted a comment in the Steelhouse Lane thread and another comment in the Loveday Street thread.

    Nightingale/Nightengale, Charles and Abigail

    With no 1861 census records for Birmingham, would you help me try to find any addresses Charles and Abigail Nightingale or Nightengale lived at between the period 1855 to 1870, or potential sources. Thanks

    Steelhouse lane

    I am making up a scrapbook on my family history and have browsed through some wonderful photos and information on the Then and Now streets & roads of Birmingham. Steelhouse Lane in 1853 is an address on a marriage certificate and the person I am researching is Charles Nightengale (could be...

    Loveday Street

    Do you have any information on Loveday Street around the 1850s? A map of that time would reflect any info. I'm doing family history research and Loveday Street (no house number) is the address on a marriage certificate dated 1853 for Abigail Mayfield. Her name changes to Nightengale (or...

    SILVER, James George

    Thank you for the responses. So it's possible the 1891 death may be the father and the 1899 death may be Clara's husband. Looks like the only way forward is to order a death certificate for the 1899 James. I'll take a chance. I will add the result to this thread when doc is received. Thank you...

    SILVER, James George

    I am having a problem finding any information on James George Silver.

    Grantham Road (Sparkbrook) bombings

    Thank you very much for the photos and location indicators. The 1939 register has 9 people living at no.3 and the photos show good sized houses. I think Elsie and her mother may have been running a boarding house as the names of the residents were unrelated and one other unrelated person...

    Air Raid Wardens And Police

    My grandad was an LMS ARP, probably Curzon Goods Station. I'm doing a family story and wondered if anyone has any images of an ARP in action.

    Mayfield family from Birmingham

    Hi Heather, 2011 is a long time since you posted your request for information on the Mayfields. Did you find out if the Mayfields were connected with a theatre in Birmingham? I'm only interested because I remember my mother made enquiries 15-20 years ago when she was alive and it came to...
