Jollies Taxi Service/Baguley Bros
« on: Sunday 13 January 08 13:34 GMT (UK) »
Hi!
I am puzzled as both of these firms were started by my family, however, I can't find any information on either of them!
Does anybody know anything?
Thanks, Thoresby x

Hi

Kellys Directory 1941 lists Jolley,s Garage Ltd at 34 Mansfield Rd Nottingham as Motor Proprietor, Taxis and Undertaker.

Baguley Brothers is listed similarly at 491/500 mansfield Rd , Sherwood. 

Individual listings  for Baguley are
 Leonard Taxi Driver 3 Melrose Street
 Leonard Barton Motor car Proprietor 498 Mansfield rd
 Richard Wilfred  16 Milner St
 William 491 Mansfield Rd

All addresses are in Sherwood and all work for the Company. Baguley Undertakers was still in Mansfield Rd in the 80,s on the corner of Melrose Street.

Hi Thoresby,

I assume you know that Baguley Bros are still in Sherwood, Nottingham? They are at 500, Mansfield Road about a mile or so from Nottingham city centre.

I've not heard of Jollies though.

Hi, just stumbled across this. I have recently purchased a house in Tollerton abd both Elias Jolley abd William Baguley are named on the deeds at some point.
