I used to live in Meadows Lea, Darby Road and you were in my class at school!   My name was Mary Treacy!

My dad Bernard Kirham, much loved, greatly missed, was the first baby to be born here in the new housing estate in 1936. His mum Martha and dad James, brothers Joe, Jack, surviving brother Alfie, sisters Doreen, Nora, Elsie and surviving sister Gertie.Dad died recently, so it was doubley nice to view this site - thanks.
