Hi Phil, Gillian was the girl who owned Gillians Hairdressers in the village. I believe the hairdressers was in the corner beside Hudsons.
Hi, my girlfriend worked at Gillian's. We celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary next year. Gillian Fogg was the owner. Her maiden name was Chinn

Re: Bartley Green-schools-cutler Family

Hi Carol,

Some time ago you were kind enough to send me a photo of your Great Uncle Alfred in Uniform. As part of the Great War Centenary commemorations we are marking the centenary of the death of each of the nineteen fallen from Bartley Green. Your Great Uncle's death on September 24th 1915 is the first of these centenaries and we are marking this with a short service and wreath laying. I would very much like to invite you to this event formally on behalf the Bartley Green Remembrance Committee. I hope these details for you are still current and would be grateful if you could get back to me through this forum.

Kind regards

Paul Finegan

I remember the forge from the 50's we kids at st michaels would sometimes go and stand by the fire in winter if the farrier was'nt too busy, I seem to remember him as old (I would be 5/6) grey moustache, I think glass's, I seem to remember the forge being between the old church school with the iron railings and the cafe by the tram terminus and clock, directly across the road was the butchers and a green grocer. On the bend into field lane facing the church was a hardware store with a large water tower, who also sold pets, rabbits etc. I remember them knocking down the old cottage's in adams hill and the libary being built at the top of adams hill, and behind were some old houses with plum trees and apple trees and gooseberry bushes where all the village kids would go scrumping, the village bobby lived down by the cock inn facing the prefabs. paul stacey

Carol,
The Cutlers,seem familiar to me,and they lived at No.12 Adams Hill,that was one of the old cottages that used to be at the top end.
If I have it right they lived next door to the Potter's.
I was in same class as Dave cutler early 60s my mama is ken leaning lived in ludford rd

Could anyone tell me the names of any primary and secondary schools that would have been in Bartley Green (around Jiggins Lane) in the period 1930-1945?

Also if anyone has any information about Arthur Cutler (wife Louisa, daughter Barbara) who lived in Bartley Green? Before he died in 1952, he worked at the Motorcycle works. His father was Samuel Cutler and there were at least 10 children - but I think they had all died by the 50's.

Thanks - I'm really enjoying this site - glad to have found it.

St Micheal's School was the only village school, it was adjacent to the St Micheal's Church, with annex's across the road, and beside the Vicarage. Mr Gurney was the incumbent, but I was very small in 1953, and went to it for 5 years, it moved to the new, modern school in 1956 I believe, it was on the corner of Field lane, and the road to the reservoir, Jiggins Lane was down the village. Of course I only lived there in the 50's, and never heard of any other school, George V , is in the new St Micheal's now. Paul
