  1. I don't eat meat and have never understood why people like me would want to eat something that looks like meat - I just don't see the appeal
  2. I'm not related, but if the problem is not being able to find her birth or entries in the census 1851 onwards, do you have the marriage cert to Oscar, which should give her father's name, unless illegitimate
  3. Wasn't he involved in the school library as well?
  4. Yes, Alan, he was a nice man and a good teacher. I always thought of him as quite ancient, but when I was say 14, he was only late 30's!
  5. There's a Death Notice in the local paper today for Cyril Jacob "former teacher of English at Bilborough College" He died on 28/1/21, aged 88
  6. SG. I'm so sad to hear your news. It was obvious that you loved him very much and he loved you
  7. The only one I haven't heard of is gorra bag on. My Mum and Dad often said most of the others on the list
  8. Thanks BK. I was only a child in the 60's, so don't remember the number, but have just looked it up and it was number 127. I know one of her neighbours was the Stanfield family
  9. Beekay Hope I haven't asked you this before, but my Aunt, Violet Charles, lived on Kennington Road in the 60's and possibly earlier, but can't remember what number. She had 2 sons and one of them might have been around your age - Raymond Charles. I wonder if you remember them?
  10. I'm so sorry to hear about your Mum, Gem. Take care
  11. Lynn H I was in the year above you at Bilborough Grammar and went to Moor Farm quite often - the only place I was kicked out from for being underage!
  12. CT Eleanor's father died in 1940, when he was living at 14 Vivian Avenue. The 1939 Register definitely says Pelham Road, but the next entry but one in the Register after Hamilton House is 10 Vivian Avenue, followed by 8, 6, 4, so could they have actually lived in Vivian Avenue?
  13. I don't know about fun, but certainly more interesting than her previous occupation!
  14. Eleanor D Fish, born 15/10/17, lived at Hamilton House, Pelham Rd, Nottm, with her parents George F and Dorothy. Her occupation in 1939 was Architectural Assistant
  15. She married a Roberts but they were divorced, so she was a Mrs Roberts for a while
  16. Helena was divorced in 1935 and was living at "Memoires", Bunny at the time (no mention of her mother in the name of the house)
  17. Sorry to hear this, Ben - get well soon
  18. Oztalgian, that's the team I remember from when I first went to a Forest game in 1967/68, aged 11-12 - only know about Wally Ardron from my Mum and Dad
  19. Lovely to see where you live, Nonna and I must say you're a wizard with the piping bag! The houses are beautiful
  20. All of these things were cheap - chitterlings, cow heel, collared head, tripe - all of which my Mum and Dad used to eat, but I could never face any of them
  21. One suggestion for a name - Wor Jackie!
  22. I'm so sorry, Carni, to hear this. Take care, both of you and hope you'll be feeling better soon
