  1. I think Bob McKinley is on there, but he was Scottish, I think
  2. A lot of coroners records haven't been retained, but might be worth finding out if they still exist, once you have details from the death cert
  3. If the death found by Jill is right (death was registered in March quarter, so a death in Feb would be covered by this), it would be worth getting the death certificate to find exact date of death and cause of death
  4. Can't see anything in the online local Nottingham newspapers of 1929 about the club
  5. The Robin A Soar who married Madeleine B Dewhurst in 1962 (found by Jill) emigrated to New Zealand in 1967 with his wife and 2 children. He was naturalised in New Zealand in 1977, date of birth given as 1 Feb 1941 and birthplace as Attenborough, England. Unfortunately he appears to have died in Auckland in 1999
  6. CB Would be helpful if you could give approx years of birth, who they married and your Mums name and when and where she was born
  7. There are records of his burial on the Deceased Online website, although there's a charge for viewing them.

  8. What was his christian name and what year did he die?
  9. I did my A Levels at BGS in 1975 and passed 3. Don't know the figures for our year, but can think of quite a few who passed 3, certainly more than 9, I would think. Something a bit dodgy, though, about A Level French grades that year!
  10. So sad. I'm a Forest fan but was so sorry to see what happened today. Hope they'll soon bounce back
  11. H Perry & Co, Underwear Manufacturers of Russell Street were in the Nottingham Phone book of 1976
  12. Think this must be the cinema I used to go go in the 70's. They showed arty subtitled European films, often with strange titles - I remember going to see The Goalkeepers Fear of the Penalty - a German film, I think
  13. Documents lost in a fire is often the standard reply concerning adoption - ask for proof
  14. Think your definition of men to avoid, Jill - immature, rowdy, badly turned out thickos is spot on!
  15. You missed out on a good experience, Jill I went on an exchange visit to France from school when I was 13/14. Very nerve wracking at that age - first time on a plane and having to stay with strangers and cope with the French language all day. Ended up being good friends with my French friend who came to stay with us in Nottm a few weeks later.
  16. I for one loved school. Grew up on a Council Estate, passed the 11+ and went to Grammar School. Not a perfect school but always grateful for a good education. Both my Mum and Dad passed to go to Grammar School in the early 30's, but neither set of parents could afford for them to go
  17. Don't remember there being such a Society at Glenbrook Junior Girls - perhaps a bit before my time
  18. I'm so sorry to hear this and thinking of you and your family
  19. So sorry Benjamin, that you've lost your mate
  20. I don't agree with a lot of things you say, but that wasn't the point I was making. I can ignore things I don't agree with but don't feel the need to criticise personally on here
  21. Malicious comment could be levelled at a few members here, sadly
  22. Have no objection to often interesting posts and photos, but if you're not interested, it's easy to ignore
