Hi Jim , remember the names Ron Simper and Billy Chadwick, simper was head of electrical in maintenance, I think and dad was over the pipe fitters , until he left in 1981. You may also remember Bill Burrows who was in maintenance at Amington. They both had many happy memories of There times there , Dad started in 43 and was made redundant in 81.

As an apprentice I played cricket for the maintenance team, so I knew quite a few of the guys in that department. I also worked both at Amington Rd and at Fordhouse Lane, the name Ron Burrows sounds familiar was he a millwright? A couple of names I do recall are Ron Simper, Bill Chadwick and Jimmy Catley.
jimmy was a good footballer we had a great side 1960 1964

Back in 1966 WB had several sites in the Tyseley area, Amington Rd., Farringdon, Rushey Lane, Kings Rd. I'm afraid I don't know of any listing of employees.

Was your mother in law called Dot and did she live in Sheldon?

Hi all
my reason for the employee list is because I am looking for my husband’s biological dad. He would of been an Asian man, my mother-in-law as I said was Dorothy Evans, we do not have a name and therefore hope that someone on this site can help. My husband was born in February 1967, we believe his dad may have lived at 100 Adderley Rd, Saltley, Birmingham. This is the only information I have. Please help if you can, as it will mean a great deal to my husband to find his roots and further family. Your help is extremely important thank you
