Born a Brummie
Can anyone please tell me where about the parish of St Asaph is in Birmingham?

I have an address from the 1891 census 8 back of 35 Bow Street and I have no idea of

what district is!!

Thank you

On a couple of Census's, some ancestors of my wife are shown living in Bell Barn Road, Parish of St Asaph.

Two questions:
1) I found a site that stated St Asaph's was on the Corner of Great Colmore Street and Latimer Street.
I can find Gt. Colmore Street on Autoroute, which joins Bell Barn Road, but cannot find Latimer Street

2) Is this area considered to be in the District of King's Norton as I've found several family members born or married in this District looking on FreeBMD

Birmingham AtoZ, Gt Colmore Street is of LEE BANK MIDDLEWAY and runs to BRISTOL STREET.
See page 73 H5. BIRMINGHAM B 15.
Hope this is of some Help.
The only other ST ASAPH Iknow of is in NORTH WALES on the way to RHYL.

Thanks, I know where Gt Colmore St. is, but can't find Latimer St.
St. Asaph's was demolished according to the website I looked at.

It seems clear that Latimer Street no longer exists but interestingly (maybe) ;) there is a "Latimer Gardens" in the same district - B15

Probably disappeared when St Asaph's was demolished!

So, the second part of my post
Is/was this area within the 'King's Norton' district?

According to my A-Z, Cregoe Street comes off Great Colmore Street,which comes off Bell Barn Road I believe this use to be part of the Kings Norton District. It is a recent A-Z.
