Memories of John Trow

As many others have done I just came across your great site.


My family lived in 4/30 Grosvenor Street West from the early 1900 until 1950. I was also born there in 1949.


I have been told that my great grandmother Mary Ann Walters (apparently known as Polly) acted as the local midwife, whether officially or unofficially.


I would love to know if anyone has any recollections of her?


My Grandmother Daisy Baker (nee Walters) also lived there and in Sherborne Street.


So, any information on the Walters and Bakers from this time would be good to hear.

My name is Lorraine Green (formerly Chambers) and I lived in Grosvenor Street West, Ladywood, Birmingham and went to St Francis' School, Brougham Street.


Are there any girls out there who went there as well?


The head teacher was Sister Collette.
