Hi, sorry about the delay in my response. I'm still a bit confused  -  I assume your grandparents ran the White Star? My ancestors ran the Eight Bells. The Eight Bells existed in the 18oos as it is on census entries for my ancestors. But,  Wikipedia says it replaced the White Star in 1911 which can't be right. Is it the White Star you have photos of?

Thanks

Thank you for your message, they ran the eight bells inn, I have been looking at the pictures today, and then received your message. I have seen the name pitchford on the eight bells inn. I am increasingly more and more annoyed by the research i have been given and re examining the facts myself the white star and eight bells burnt down and the building which is now the odd fellows wine bar is the building that is in its place. The year of the fire may not be 1911, it was on a website. they definitely ran the eight bells inn.

I have pictures of the eight bells inn and the white sar

On the 1901 Census the Star Hotel is at No 11 and the Eight Bells at No 9 (Harry R Morgans - Licensed Victualler). The Eight Bells was still No 9 in 1911 but No 11 is missing from the street number sequence. No mention of a Star Hotel.

Kelly's Directory of Shropshire 1913 (on line) has the Eight Bells in Market Place, no number given, and the landlord is the same landlord as the 1911 Census.
