  1. @george47666 if you add a '@' at he front of the persons name you are wanting to contact the system should send a notifivation/email to that person. @Andy Millne - have I got that right?
  2. Previous update wrong - No 1 is Joe Grant.
  3. No 1 is Barron (Biff) Smith not No 9.
  4. @george47666 - A lad on the Facebook past times History has been asking if anyone has a photo of the school. Do you know which camp the school was on and have you ever seen any photos of the school?
  5. No 26 names as Jeff Howe by Nathan Barnes of the Facebook Past Times History group.
  6. Same class as Michael, from Guidepost all the way through - 1960 to 1965.
  7. We do it all the time Vic, mix up the comments within topics I think the council estate - Woodside - that is behind Stead lane would have been built in the late 1940's or early 1950's. This old map, 1938, published 1947 shows the area before the council estate, and bungalows at the bottom of Stead lane were built.
  8. @Canny lass - sorry I missed Tuesday 'one joke' night. Last week I was passing the multi storey flats and could see Abdul bashing his carpet off the wall of the building. I shouted up - 'what's the Abdul, won't it start' 😂
  9. Updated No 14, with '?' and reposted the photo onthe Facebook group yesterday but no response to the update when I checked this morning🙃
  10. Snap - we did exactly the same but I always assumed the dam we build had been knocked down by other groups of lads; never knew about the fishermen and the sea trout.👍 I turned 71 last year - wouldn't be surprised if we built the dam up together on occasions😊 Eggy
  11. Good to hear from you Bill - @HIGH PIT WILMA
  12. A couple of names from Mick Cunningham and No 5 is not Jimmy Cunningham.
  13. @Thelma Collingwood - this photo posted on the Facebook group Bygone Bedlington by Mick Cunningham. The surname 'Collingwood' gets memntioned in quite a few comments. @Canny lass - this lot old than you but you never know you might recognise one or two.
  14. @Tonyp - on the Durham Mining Museum site they keep a record of all the pits in Northumberland and Durham. For each pit they have pages of info including a list of miners (that they know about) that were killed at each pit. The site is maintained by volunteers and there is one guy (cos I was once in touch with him) called the 'Web Master' who updates all the records. For each miner that was killed he creates an In Memoriam page with the info he can find about about each deatch. This is the In Memoriam page created for your grandfather.
  15. Christian names for No's 4,7 & 14 named by Bygone Bedlington members
  16. Updates from Bygone Bedlington members Robert Walkwe (No 10) and Doreen Bibby (No 32)
  17. @Jammy - did you see the photos of Puddlers Row on page 4 of this topic? Can't remember ever seeing any photos of the gas lamps down Stead Lane. There are still a few (listed buildings) of the old gas lamps in the Seaton Sluice through to Whitley bay area :-
  18. The airey houses were top half of Waverley Avenue (Nos 43 to 78), Tosson Close, half of Steadlands Square (Nos 1 to 14, I think) and Coquetdale Place (where I lived - No 5 from 1949) You can still see the airey houses, and some of the new builds (Waverley Avenue & Steadlands Square) on Google Street view as it is still showing 2009. Where Nos 21 & 22 Coquetdale Place and Nos 1 to 6 Tosson Close were there is a Puddlers Drive sign :-
  19. I don't have two accounts @John Fox (foxy) & @john fox but when I log in on different machines (= 2 x Desktop PC -one Windows Vista & one Windows 10) it is as if I have two accounts. I Log in on one machine and then I would have expected that I would not have to log in on the other machine but In do. However when I comment from either machine they do use the same member Id. @Andy Millne will probably be able to delete/remove one of your accounts.
  20. No3 25, 32 & 35 updated by Doreen Bibby (nee Allison) and Robert Walker.
