Hi, does anyone know of the existance of a picture of St Clements Church, Nechells? My Great Great grandparents maried there in 1873.

They were living at 13 High Park Street, Nechells but I think those properties have been demolished?

If anyone knows of any pictures i'd love to see them

Kind Regards

Chris

The church was pulled down. All that's left is the church hall where Sunday School was held. High Park Street has been replaced with a huge Chinese Supermarket which also replaces pubs, a coal yard, a school, a factory, a bank, a chemist, many shops and even more houses.

My sister, Linda, was christened there, too, in 1950. The church was where I played the part of the Angel Gabriel in my school nativity, twice. My school was St Clement's in High Park Street. I was also in the church choir as well as the school choir.

The church was demolished much later. Probably the eighties although I'm not sure.

I'm hoping to find some information about this church where my late Mum worshipped as a young woman. I've seen photographs of it and know it was demolished in the 1970's but do any of you know which St. Clement it was named after and remember what it was like inside.Also,when she was in her seventies, Mum mentioned she'd been a "Clementine"-a member of their amateur dramatic group. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Apologies for the churchy pun! After Mum met my Dad she became a Roman Catholic and they were married at St. Joseph's Church, Thimblemill Lane. I think it saddened her to leave behind the social activities she was part of at St. Clement's and in those days, she had to cut ties with it completely.

Welcome Sheila. I’m moving your post to an existing thread about the Church. I think you’ll find it interesting. Viv.
