A genealogical enquiry
I wonder if anyone remembers my father, Mr William Cedric Poole, who was the signalman for Churchill and Blakedown for many years.
I am Mrs Josie Whitehead, and now I live in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, but, as Josie Poole, I was born at Haventree, Kidderminster Road South, West Hagley in June 1941, and my brother is David Poole, who now lives in Hereford. My mother was Mrs Dorothy Poole.
I would be interested to know if anyone remembers our family.

We have received a request from Wendy, which I've copied below. If you can help please send Wendy an e-mail.


I wonder if you could help me - I am interested to find out what happened to a house called Granada in Blakedown village.  I do not think it is still there and wondered when and why it was demolished. It was accessed by what now is a car park, the tree lined driveway being at the rear of the car park.

Many thanks

Also I have received a genealogical enquiry (that's Family Tree to some of you and me) from Canada. If you have any information that will help please e-mail the Web Master and I will forward it on.

I'm from Ontario Canada and have recently begun to research the history of this small Village.
Do you know if there were ever people by the name of Mary (Rice) and Marcus Craig or Rachel Rice?
Was there every a school or church with a name beginning with MAR ?
