    Im interested in any information on the Perseverance Iron Foundry, Burley. This was run by my 4 * great grandfather John Whitham until his death in 1933. Then by his sons Stephen and Joseph until 1950, when Joseph and his son John took over. Stephen went on to form Monk Bridge iron works. John died in 1941followed by his father in 1960 when the business was taken over by his younger son Joseph and was eventually sold to Greenwood and Batley in 1961. I am particularly interested in whether there are any remains of the original iron foundry still in existence. Apparently a rail connection to the GNR was introduce in 1956 of which there may still be traces.

    Searching on behalf of my husband, Neil McNair (previously known as Leo Foster) from Sheffield area. Mother had surnames late McNair, previously Foster, possibly Gregory with ms of Bates. Step-father was Daniel McNair, deceased bio-father was Leon Patrick Foster. Brother/Half-brother as we have been told by husband's mum, Ellen (Ellen May, aka Nellie, aka May Ellen) was Walter Gregory (strong possibility of Walter Neville Gregory, deceased) Any info very very much appreciated as hitting a brick wall here. ThankS

    Parents Bob and Margaret Hastings lived 24 Drysdale Road Lewisham (demolished 1960's) 1930's-60's. Heard that my grandparents (Emanuel and Harriett) owned and ran a boarding house early 1960s in Lewisham? Anyone remember us or know anything about the boarding house
