View attachment 115526 Hi folks, can you please tell me where this is. It looks like the top of Porchester Street, with Clifford St going across. I may be wrong. Lyn was there a Salvation Army or church at the top of Porchester St, only my sisters attended the Brownies. I use to see a lot of nuns when I lived there. Hope I am on the right thread.
jackie as mike has said it porchester st...maybe you could ask about the salvation army on the porchester st thread as you may get more reponse as i dont know the answer to that one...the sally army i attended was in nurery road and we also saw a lot of nuns around as i lived close to st marys convent but that is quite a way from porchester st
Hi Mikejee, Thank you for the website, I found what I was looking for my parents names listed at 60 Porchester Street.Jackie
The site for electoral rolls (and other things) is https://www.midlandshistoricaldata.org/. this goes up to 1965. If you have credits with it (minimum purchase £5 and they have to be used within 6 months)you can search electoral rolls by name (or two names together), or be street (remembering to put it in full , street as street not st, and road not rd) without using any of your credits . If you wanrt to see a scan of the whole page then you use your credits. People are on the electoral roll if they are eligable to vote. Thus someone born in 1960 would not appear in them till 1981. In 1965 the people registered at no 60 are just allan & ann, with Matilda Finlan in the house back of no 60
Thanks for this - it's the clearest copy I have seen of the pic on the right so I can actually see my late Dad's name above the door. Really chuffed !
