May be the Old Wesleyans' Refuge Chapel, Cradley. Seems to be known more under the term the Refuge, Cradley.

There also is a Court in Cradley known as the Refuge, have you a name and date, as it may give a clue from the census?

In the 1881 census Henry is 25 and Susannah 25 and could be living in Bertha Road? in Yardley, son Henry is 3 with a
brother Arthur 1 year old.

In 1871 Henry (father) is 15 and living in Bordesley.

Thank you Pedrocut for your search, the above is not matching my census .the family may have lived at the Refuge for a short time , then moved to Holiday street.
