Annewiggy, Heathite - Fantastic, thank you, solved an age-old problem for me. Heathite. As a very small child I visited Grange Road. Two houses, confusing, but could never remember who we visited. Now, what you have found for me - Thomas Simpson was my dad’s grandad at 322, and what you both found, Arthur Lote at 318 (the Baldwins, cousin were at St Thomas's Road.) Now the Lotes were lifelong friends of my parents - early twenties, played tennis, visited silent films, but Arthur ran paper chases with my dad, played football. He had the first car, took us to relatives etc we called them uncle and aunt. Now I must go to Blitz topic.

Hello Kaga, thank you for the feedback. I'm glad to be able to help. By the way, Annewiggy mentioned the 1939 register, you are there too. You should not be, because as Annewiggy has rightly pointed out, if you're still here then it should be kept private.

Heathite, Annewiggy. Not sure about Grange Road in the old days, but Sutton Stop was really Hawkesbury Junction (stop). Over Grange Road bridge there was Hawkesbury Railway Halt and Hawkesbury Farm, across the fields was Hawkesbury Hall In Parrotts Grove, and Hawkesbury School and dance hall. Greg. AG Road was Hawkesbury and so was the Slough Pool, I had never heard it called Wyken Pool until this forum - also, Hawkesbury Collieries, and all were in Foleshill, until McGrory decided to split them and put Victora Colliery in Foleshill and Craven Colliery in Wyken, but Potters Green in Walsgrave - how he did that I have no idea.

Heathite Looking at those Grange Road numbers again, on the east side you have 2, 4, 6, then jump to 120 because of the allotments. But 2, 4, 6 were down the side of Foxford playing fields, hidden behind a tall hedgerow, now Longford Park.

Midland Red Wow, just been reading through this topic, loved the advert for the rink 1937 - how about that? Used to go there then, wonder if they weren't allowed to advert the kids boxing shows they had occasionally? The thing that gripes me everything about the area - boats etc, I can’t find one photo of the canal drained of water or mentioned. It was a phenomenal sight, you would have had a field day, with all the boats lopsided, some terrific shots.

A long time ago, between Hurst Road and the canal bridge there was a field. On the right hand side was Jones the baker, the house had a huge wall facing the field. On the left-hand side was Hackett’s undertakers. Between the two was a railing fence, the entrance had two large railing gates with cherubs or angels, but all painted shiny black. The buildings sprawled down the sloping field to the brook at the bottom, but Hackett’s built some small terraces with white chippings as paths - every so far along were pieces of granite rock and flower vases of all shapes and sizes, one of burnished gold, also half-size headstones with carved verse. There was a small sculptured white column with open bible, but pride of place was the glass burial hearse, with its shiny polished woodwork and brass fittings. Pulled by two black horses, their coats shone. An usher in long black coat and tall hat would stand on the canal bridge and stop the trams as the burial party entered onto the road. With the flowers the scene was a splendid, colourful sight as it made its way down to the church. Kids stopped playing, gentlemen raised hats, the trams stopped, people lined the square, and time stood still.

On 19th Jul 2018 10:32pm, LauraCovFan said: Wave Does anyone remember the fire on Lady Lane at a old historic house where the first prototype engine was made. The fire destroyed this building. It was left standing for years until it was demolished completely to build new housing recently. I remember watching the fire at this building. It must have been over 20 years ago. I was only little. Sheep were kept in the field beside it for sometime. I grew up in Longford and lived on Lady Lane at number 17 and number 9 The Croft until I was around 11 when we moved to Alderman's Green.
Hi there You say you live at No.9 The Croft. Mrs Grimley lived next down to the Tench family. My brother Henry Charles Treddle aka Tim married Val. We lived at No. 21 next door to my Dad's Aunt Liza.

I have in front of me my mum's baptism certificate dated 2nd January 1927. I think my grandparents lived in Grange Road in those days. There is an inset photo on the certificate which is almost the same shot. My mum’s extended family were all Longford and Bedworth people working as miners, weavers and publicans, amongst other trades.
