Hello to you too, tricianorton Wave & welcome to our Coventry History Forum. I was attending the prep school in 1953 & at that time, jewellery was not high on my list of subjects then, but I hope that someone will come up with something on this. Best wishes to you Tricia. Wave

Hi thank you for responding I'm doing a bit of family research and the subject about the robbery keeps popping up so would really like to clear it up. Also does anybody know where I would find old court records for Coventry.

Hi Tricia, It depends on whether it was heard at the Magistrates or Crown Court. Both have web-sites but not sure how far back searchable records go. Maybe someone else can help out?

Does anyone know the location? I know they were at 14-15 Broadgate, there is a 13 near the Royal Vaults but I can't spot Flinns nearby in old pictures, nor do I know the number sequencing of old Broadgate! Did the demolition of '36 end their Broadgate days?

Number 13 was Allwoods in the photos I've seen. It even had the number painted on it. Other names - Whitfields; Elkington. Edited by member, 1st May 2016 9:17 pm

The fire insurance maps confirm that 14/15 were to the right (ie. south) of 13. Coventry Insurance map 5

Thanks, that's useful to know how Broadgate was numbered. Now I'll have to try and spot it on an old photo. I probably had it somewhere, I lost my download folder with about 900 assorted photos! (People, be careful cleaning your tablet storage).

Two Flinns & Co. on Warwick Row? I can find references to Flinn & Co. at number 14 being jewellers, and Flinn & Co. at number 10 with no mention of being a jewellers but seeming like a job agency? http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/searchbna/results?memberlastsubclass=none&searchh....
