 Such a low response to remember those who fought and fell...shame.

 Castle Bromwich Ruskie....there's a remembrance parade there this morning,there will be lots of youngsters proudly walking in their uniforms to remember those who fell,its very humbling to see them.

Taking a second look at the Blkakeland Street questiuon.
I have found a confusing situation.
I realise I had confused Blakenall Street Small Heath and Blakeland Street Little Bromwich
I know Benjamin Flavell and his family lived in Blaklend St in Little Bromwich yet his probate says he lived at Blakeland street Small Heath. Similarly on Isaac Flavells probate his son's adress was Blakenall St Small Heath both families being Metal Dealers.
So now I am totally confused but as most records found are for Blakeland Street I will concertrate on that one. Does anyone know anything about the history of this street in Little Bromwich was it a traditional travellers camp ? were the houses owner ocupied or rented? Who ownedthem? Was there a metal yard in the street? Why did it atract so many Sedgely Traveller families?
Hope you can throw some light on its history
Many thanks

 Blakeland Street is classed as in Bordesley Green,there were quite a few scrapyards in that area including rag merchants but I'm not sure whether there was any in Blakeland Street,not in my time ( 1960ish)....there should be a history of Little Bromwich via the internet,there was fever hospital there many years ago.
