    Caesar Jenkyns Small Heath Captain

    Thank you Mike that information will be most useful. I don't live in Birmingham now but I should think that Harborne would be the most likely cemetery as helved in Ladywood.Next time I am in the city I will have a look in the new library at the records for Harborne and see what I can find

    I have obtained a Villa Supporters Club Card from 1956. The club was operated from a pub called 'The Guild ' in Witton Road/Lane. Was anyone a member and can advise me how it was run? The card shows George Edwards as President. George was later a newsagent after he retired from Villa

    Miller craddock aston villa 1948-1951

    Ladies and Gentlemen. I am tracing the sporting history of the above player. Very popular with the fans for his all out effort in every game he tragically had to give up the game with a serious heart condition when at the peak of his powers. Miller passed on in 1960 at the age of 33. You would...

    Balsall Heath.

    Is this where you were asking for This is not Orchard Terrace. It is, however, Longbridge Road. Just before demolition I think which was around 1968. My grandparents Alfred and Verena Suckling lived directly opposite the A35 van.

    Whisky A Go Go

    Unfortunately none of the attachments will open due to the site being hacked. I saw Charlie and Inez Fox at the Whisky and either Steam Packet or Shotgun Express (always get those two bands mixed up) it was a memorable time for me and the start of my clubbing experiences
