Hi Dutchman, Wave & thank you for putting me right on that. I can remember a relative talking about someone in hospital there, a very long time ago. Wave ps. I have an ambulance on my gallery, talking about hospitals. It's a B'ham ambulance supplied by Gen-Motors under contract with Bedford. I have asked for a Coventry maroon one or a St. Johns black with white stripe. For all of my time spent in Paybodys, I only travelled in an ambulance once. Wave

There was a large isolated building below the garage near the corner of Spon Street called 'Holyhead House', your relative may have meant that?

Interesting to see a "burial ground" marked on that map... Was that linked to the Quakers?

Hi NormK, I was asking if anyone had any photographs of the Francis Barnett factory in Lower Ford Street (opposite the chapel) a week or so ago. It was demolished post 1963 I believe. I wondered if Hilditch were involved in this and whether any photos survive of the demolition?
