Memories of Spencer Glover


Edwin Francis Glover was my Gt Gt Grandfather of 283 Dudley Road.

One of his Sons Albert Francis Glover (my Gt Grandfather) married Catherine Dawson the daughter of the tobacconist from 70 Dudley Road.

They had a son Hector, my Grandfather and they lived in Winson Street.

I love local history & family history.

Still work near this area at Avery’s in Smethwick.

Any information or photos much appreciated.
