Greyhound Coaches Owned By Sam Wilkes


Proud Brummie!
I have just found out from my Dad's Cousin in Canada that Dad's Grandad's Brother, Dave Wilkes, used to run a coach company called Greyhound. As far as I know he lived in Wolverhampton. Dave had Brother's named Sam (known as "Shocker", my Dad's Grandad) "Winky", Isiah and Tom. :)

Did anyone on this site know any of them or of the coach company? It may still be running today?! :rolleyes:

That was a Bristol company, not Wolverhampton. Do you know the approximate dates that Dave Wilkes's company operated?

There is no Dave Wilks, or any Wilkes associated with coaches,or the like, or greyhounds (other than pubs or dog racing) in the 1940 staffs Kellys

Sorry I misunderstood your first post or didn't read it carefully enough. I thought he ran the company in Canada. :)Mo
