Memories of Steve Croton



I lived on Gt Tindal Street around 1960, thatís me in the photo on the right aged 4.


I was hoping to find my old friend Charlie.


My Dads name was Len and my momís Jean. We had an Alsatian called Rex.


I went to the local infantís school for about 2 years, but I canít think of its name. Sorry I donít have any more photos


Kind regards

Can you help me please?


My father Roy Fisher would like to make contact with person(s) who saved a factory from going up in flames. The exact dates/year are not known...but a guess would be around 1957. My dad together with the night watchman and the below mentioned helped in preventing a fire that was well alight from spreading at THOMAS CHATWIN & Co.  plus PIERCEY & Co. in Great Tindal Street.


Those involved were Kenneth Stokes, then of 15 Browning Street, Kenneth Jackson of 1/50 Johnstone Street, my dad who resided at 11 Browning Street and Patrick Plunkett of 60 Morville Street. All four lads were aged between 17-19 at the time.


My father is in poor health. I am sure finding the whereabouts of the above would give him a lift. I have attached a newspaper cutting which I hope will jog a few memories.


Hope to hear from anyone soon.


Kind regards
