  1. Won't be sitting in a pub/club but will be having a bottle of Marston's Owd Rodger to welcome in Lockdown 2.0
  2. @Canny lass - Mikki replied :- Mikki Lee Townley Author ah yes I see. All these "banks" are very confusing. They should have included a picture of each house on the census would make reserching a whole lot easier. Thank you for your help I doubt I'll come across anything else in my search for Bank cottage as I think you have covered it, but if I do ill share it.

  5. @Graceson Oxley- I've checked through the Bedlington Mechanics album we have in the Gallery>Sports section but we don't have the name Robert Miller on any of the photos. If your dad can identify your great granda then I will add his name to the photo. This is a direct link to the Bedlington Mechanics Gallery album where all the Mechanics photos that have been posted, in any section of this site, are stored in the album.

  8. A new member on the Bedlington remembered Facebook group has asked :- Mikki Lee Townley 30 October at 13:13 · I've have searched the group and seen the maps on the new area my research has taken me which is Bank Cottage, East End, Bedlington. This is the birth place of my grandad in 1914. Do any photos exist? Myself and a possible relative are trying to piece together my grandads rather secretive and mysterious life. And followed on later with :- Mikki Lee Townley Author Thank you everyone it seems my grandad may have been there for about 10 years minimmun as it shows on his birth cert in 1914 and his sisters marriage cert 1924. --------------------------------------------- Does anyone know anything about Bank Cottage? The only info I have been able to give her is this old photo + a map extract with Bank Cottage labelled :-
