Heathite - any chance of a delve in the directories for me please to look for A Bates grocery shop in Spon Street, possibly post-war but pre Ring Road. I have had a request from a relative. Edited by member, 30th Mar 2021 9:46 am

Hi, here's what I have found. The image is from 1935. Also from the 1937 directory, A Bates 138 Spon st, still a cooked meat dealer. Mrs N Bates 123 Leicester Causeway, grocer. Ernest Bates, a butcher, 156a Eagle st. O Bates, grocer, 5 East st William Bates, butcher, 13 Spon st. W F Bates, butcher, 8 Station st. In 1955 A Bates is a Turf Commissioner at 138 Spon st. In 1960 there is A Bates, grocer 138 Spon st.

I wonder if all those butchers called Bates were related? Thanks Heathite. I had a go searching the directories last week and it's a lot of hard work. Thumbs up

Hi Helen, et al, we'll see what Neil has to say. My approach with a search is to start with the resident alphabetic listing. Look up the surname and see if an address and a trade is given. I know most of the directories do not have this listing but Neil gave us a time-frame. The 1937 set does have a comprehensive set of lists, and it's a big changeover time for Coventry. Butcher Row about to disappear. Fortunately, the set of directories I have covers 1828 to 1972, but not all years.
