    St Mary's School Wills Street

    Hi Lyn, he would have lived in either Park Rd or Whitmore St. I remember him saying he hated it at that school. The reason he was a Roman Catholic was because his father died just before he was born otherwise he would have been christened C of E, but his mother remarried to a Roman Catholic.

    Lodge Rd Hockley (the Flat)

    Doubt if you will find one Lyn, I have been looking for years. I seem to remember that you walked down some steps to get to it, I was only a kid at the time but I believe it changed into a laundrette, mid to late 50's. It was on the same side as the Pentecostal, but I can't remember whereabouts.

    Graham Paul Webb

    I couldn't find the link to Grahams tribute in The Mail so I tried to take a pic with my mobile. Not the best of pictures but it was the best I could do.

    In the garden 2013 - 2018

    I am not sure now whether it is an Adonis or Holly Blue ? This is the underside of an Adonis Blue, similar to your picture....The Holly Blue seems to be more white.

    Peg, not quite, I am not very good at this, but I have tried to do a diagram the best I could. Hopefully it will show you as it was. The map image shows the yard I lived in, coloured green. Terry

    I can only remember one shop where they delivered animals for slaughter, and that was the butchers next to the outdoor on the corner of the Flat and Ford St. I remember standing there watching them being herded into the back of the shop, and a few days later we kids used to go and ask for a pigs...
