    World War One.

    Ernest O Croft served with Royal Garrison Artillery, Regimental no 75184 and Royal Engineers, Reg no 252987, according to his medal records. His service records have actually survived (so many didn't) and there's no mention of Sherwood Foresters

    My new home

    Wonder whether your sister might have been nearer my age - what was her name and roughly when was she born?. Ooh you were posh in those days, to have a car!

    My new home

    They lived near the junction with Melbury Road as far as I remember

    My new home

    The Browns had a daughter called Janice and boys, Richard, Malcolm and Phillip

    My new home

    Huxley Close - near me, then. We lived on Melbury Road from around 1965, when I was 8, until I Ieft home to go to University in mid 70's, although my Mum was there until she died in 1999. Did you know the Brown family who lived in Huxley Close?

    Looking for my birth mother - Susan Allen

    I wish you luck too, but don't think you should be posting her details on here. I'm happy to come up with suggestions of how to trace her, if you want to message me

    Hello Nottingham!

    Good to see you on here - from one Bilborough girl to another!
  8. Did you see my message about a possible address for the son of Ivy and Joseph?
  9. I don't remember some of the teachers you mention. I started at BGS in 1968, so perhaps a little while after you. Remember Mr Downing well and am surprised at your description of him
  10. Found who I believe to be the son, who is on the Electoral Register with his wife, but only up to 2011. So, he may have died, or has just removed himself from the publically available electoral roll. Online death records only go up to 2007, so I can't confirm whether or not he's died. Doesn't look as though the house has been sold recently, though. If you send me a private message, can give you the address - worth writing, just in case he or his wife are still there
  11. I've done some research on him too. Agree with David on wife - Ethel Ellen is named as his wife in his Army service records, and the addresses matches the one you have. One daughter, as David says - Ivy Florence, who married Joseph E Rose. Ivy and Joseph appear to have had 2 sons, both born in the 1930's. One of the sons has died, and haven't found the other one, although have found a marriage for him. Perhaps investigating S H Gething's siblings and their descendants, assuming he had some, would be worth doing, as it's quite an unusual surname

    Long way to go until the end of the season. Can only say doing well so far

    Things you can't stop yourself doing

    I play those sorts of games, Jill - not when I want to sleep, but when I'm waiting around for something and bored
