[28 MAR 98] The Birches, Tamworth Road

We are trying to find out something of the history of 'The Birches', on the Tamworth Road. It was, at one time, the Nurses' Home for Keresley Hospital, and may have belonged to Lord Iliffe. We would be grateful for any information.

[28 MAR 98] Bradley Family

Hi all

I wonder if anyone can help me, I am new at genealogy and my father-in-law who is not very well, has aked me to help find some information on his mother.

Could anyone there give me an e-mail address for anyone doing the Bradley or Piper family tree?

The only information I have is that her name was Florence Bradley and she married a John Gordon Piper. They had two children:

  • Doreen, who died very young around 1915? from the 'Spanish FLU'
  • Ronald Gordon Piper born 2/12/1921 now living in Tasmania, Australia

I do know that Florence is buried in a cemetary in Walsall somewhere? on a hill as my dad said he could see the cemetery from the school window. I think he went to Walsall Public School and he was about 6 or 7 when she died.

His parents at sometime ran a hotel in Meriden called the Bull's Head.

On my father-in-laws birth certificate which was registered in the 'Coventry District, Sub District of Coventry South West in the Counties of CB etc' it states that their residence was 29 High Street, Coventry in 1921.

As my father-in-law is ill, I would like to be able to tell him more about his mother. Can anyone help me?

I can be contacted by e-mail at or by mail at PO Box 727, Katoomba NSW Australia.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

I would like to see a conference about Gay issues and Gay life in Coventry. For far too long gay people in Coventry have put up with sub standard venues and terrible social facilities. It is fair to say that the Gay scene in Coventry is almost as bad as the straight scene for the lack of excitement and quality. However, the choice of pubs is appalling.

Although it has improved in the last year, the improvement (mainly the opening of "Rainbows"), is still not enough. I think that it is time that Coventry's gays stood together more and really developed a sense of community. Only then will we be able to improve life in Coventry and combat the homophobia that some of us encounter on a daily basis.

[23 MAR 98] Honey Hall Farm

Hi, Coventry

I am hoping someone out there will remember the area of land, on Broad Lane, where WOODLANDS SCHOOL is now situated, prior to the school being built.

My family - the ARNOLD's - owned this land, about 15 acres, from the early 1800's until about 1927. The property was called 'Honey Hall Farm'. I would like to locate any old photos, documents or other information relating to this property.

Many thanks
