Hi I have a label from the above, Family Ale.It shows medals won from 1908 to 1912. Does anyone have information on the company? Did they brew or just bottle? regards Geoff

V & A Heeley were an ale & porter bottler at 138 Scholefield ST . In the 1904 Kellys (which refer to 1903) the site was listed as Charles Alma Boot, beer retailer, but the #V & A Heeley were listed there in the 1908 edition (which related to 1907) till the 1933 edition (which referred to 1932), but had gone by the 1936 edition (referring to 1935)

I couldn't find any mention in the London Gazette, but the following announcement appeared in both the Birmingham Mail and the Birmingham Daily Gazette on 20 November 1915.
