Albert what was your nickname when you was growing up ?
That's lovely Albert. My Auntie and Uncle and cousins lived on that estate after their house in Frederick Street was demolished. I think it was Cheltenham Avenue. Your mother looks a lovely lady.
Irene. You certainly hit the nail on the head there, relating to my mother. If you turned left on leaving my mother’s, you came into Cheltenham Avenue.
Mick. I was either called Bert, or Albert.
That sideboard is very familiar, well polished too. Lovely photo Albert.

Mick. So long as nobody called me early.
Albert, for the first 5 years of my life I was living at 6 Cheltenham Avenue. My parents having just married. They lodged with Annie and Jim Rawson from 1941 to 1947. The Fosters lived opposite, I still have vivid memories of the Avenue.
Keith. We moved there 1949/50, next door to Fosters.

Edna - does Sapper Arthur Kay, son of George and Mary Ann, appear on your family tree? I've just entered details on the War Memorials Register of the family grave in Ince Cemetery where he is commemorated - and where his nephew, Sgt Jack Hartley RAF, is buried.
Yes glenis , she always answered to Dolly, although her name was Cicely. In the lounge she had a tall bureau positioned in the corner where there was a window that faced Chapel Street. Before I was married, she would put my police helmet on top of it. She said it would deter burglars. She was probably right.
Thank you David for. Comment.May Kay was my mother in law.Her parents were George and Mary, She had a brother Joseph,sister Nancy and Beatrice.But I have not got Arthur.George and Mary are buried in Ince cemetery.But I have not got Arthur.Were they lived in Manchester Rd.. the house at the time was a shop..

If Albert Short and the (ex) Rev David Long went as partners in a shop, what would they call it ?
