Not all years are online, you'd need to visit the reference library to see them all. However, from what is online, I can tell you that jeremiah and Betty Flynn are recorded at 5 Wallace Rd, Selly Oak in 1950 & 52; at 106 Ashbrook Rd, Kings Heath in 1955 & 57; and at 57 Millington Rd, Shard End in 1960, 62 & 65.

Selby Grove Billesley was originally B14 and changed to B13. John(Fred) & Ada Pidgeon lived at 49 Beauchamp Road, not far from Selby Grove
Selby Grove was off Bromwall Road , I remember the name Pidgeon lived about half way between Halstead Road and the Green in Beauchamp Rd.

Thank you for that, as i said the Pidgeon family were not related to my Dad he was all most certainly a Lodger there when he came to live in Birmingham and met my Mom.

Thank you LLoyd for that i knew of the 3 addresses but not the exact years, they were there apart from Ashbrook road where i lived the first 6 months of my life

Poolpit, you are correct. John (known as Fred) and Ada Pidgeon were my aunt and uncle. I lived next door at 51 Beauchamp Road from 1940 - 1953

Thanks for your information, jwp in the 1947 Electrol Roll John & Ada are down as living in 49 Selby Grove when you lived next door to them in Beauchamp road in this year ¿

Is it a coincidence that there were 2 x John & Ada Pidgeon, with address as 49? I was only a little lad then and only knew my immediate family. My memory is even worse 70 years on!

I think the 1947 entry is a transcription error. John & Ada are listed at 49 Beauchamp Road on 1939 register and also e roll. They are still at that address in 1955 e roll. I also think it is Selbourne Grove which is off Bromwall Road.

The Three groves on Bromwall Road were Picton , Selby, and Hopton , Selbourne Grove was off Hullbrook Road opposite where Bromwall joined it.
