I was told of a murder on Burns Street, just off Waverley Street.  The story was told to me by Bob Highton "Big Red " soon after I joined  the City fire brigade in early '68. It must have been earlier sixties I think -  they had been called to a fire on Burns Street. As he was going up the stairs, through the smoke, his head hit something. looking up it was some ones legs, hanging. He told me he ran out in fright !. When the smoke had cleared, blood was seen leaking through a bedroom ceiling,

in the attic was found the body of a girl. It was found, apparently, that the father had murdered the girl, set fire to the house and hung himself.

I don't think this was a tall tale as it seemed to trouble him all the time I knew him. 

I don't see it referred to on this thread   - was it all true anyone ?

I knew the Tizzard family (there were loads of them, a great family) who ran the Swinger (Forest Hotel) on Bulwell Hall Estate, then they took on the Jubilee pub up Carlton way & visited them a few times, then lost touch with them. I remember the murder & thinking if he was one of them. Years later was talking about the murder at work & a woman said her daughter dated a Tizzard & is almost certain they're related. She thinks he was a milkman...
