I have a photograph of Edward Tallboys and his family outside of The Forge, his blacksmith shop. To whom do I e-mail a copy?

Hi, We plan to have a reunion of the class of 53 (Coronation Year) Dursley Grammar School. A number of us have got together and are looking at dates in early July. We would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in attendance or just contact with old school friends. Val aka Titch

In about 1965 my grandfather Major General John Denham Shotter MBE AFC became the partner of Georgina Lister who was the daughter of Sir Percy Lister. They lived together on the island of Sark where he died in 1977 aged about 90. Georgina was very much younger than he and would be about 80 if she is alive today.

Hello all. Just a quick message to ask if anyone out there has a photo of the main building of the old Grammar School at Rednock - I believe it was actually Rednock House. If so could you please scan it and e-mail it to me. Following the message I left on this site last year I was contacted by Dave Rees and we met up after 46 years! I also arranged for two photos of the 3rd year Rugby and Cricket teams to go in the local Gazettee on 12 Jan this year and as a result and with Dave's help have fitted all the names to the photos and made contact with several old school friends. Thanks to this website smile

Hi Mike. I'm glad you found the website useful. If you go to the 'People' link on the home page, then 'George Augustus Graham' you will see a photo of his home, Rednock House before it before it became a school. I have others too in school days but can't get to them yet.

I was born in 1950 in Dursley, at The Rangers - now something else on the site. I went to Miss Newth's nursery school.

My Dad, Peter Shovelton was an apprentice at Listers and returned there after the war (2nd WW!).

My mother's father (Fred Moore) had a dental practice in Prospect Place.

We had a house built in 1953 called Kilcroney - a little bit out of the full centre of Dursley. There was a blacksmith opposite and a farm next door across the small valley/dip.

Love to hear from folks who have memories from these times.

Romy smile

Andy (dursleyglos admin) Sunday, 18 December 2011 12:47
Hello Romy
Thanks for the post. All of the area around Ranger's House is now under a housing estate. Whereabouts in relation to the centre of Dursley was Kilcroney as it's not a name I'm familiar with?

Roger Wednesday, 21 August 2013 05:37
I went to Miss Newth's too. I was born in 1956 so I must have gone there after you. I have just had a dream about being at that little school, it was vivid that I have just searched for Miss Newth. Thus I found your post

I'm hoping you can help me, do you know of the address The Craypen, Woodford, Dursley and if it still exists?

Rich Hughes Thursday, 8 September 2011 08:27
Hello, If you mean the Crapen at Woodfields then yes it does.

My dad was evacuated from Harwich and would love to hear from you. I am also looking for your memories and photos for my Harwich and Dovercourt web site.

Andy (dursleyglos admin) Monday, 5 September 2011 20:41
Hi Steve
I interviewed a number of evacuees from Harwich and wrote an article for our local history journal. Some of them never went back and still live around here. I think there may still be an annual reunion of evacuees (though now on a much reduced scale).

Thanks, this is a great site. My father's family lived and still lives in Dursley and my father was a fireman on the donkey. Will up load some photos once he digs them out.

smile I have enjoyed seeing Dursley. I have researched a family connection who lived there for several years in 1820-1860 era, maybe erlier. Joseph Edmonds and son George ran a livery, omnibus and fly carriage business at 3-5 Long Street. I had hoped to find the names among the church records but alas no files. Did the files not get created ?


Andy (dursleyglos admin) Saturday, 20 August 2011 15:53
Hello Paul
Some of the documents exist but unfortunately are not online yet and probably won't be for sometime due to other commitments I'm afraid.

Excellent site. I enjoyed browsing the pictures. I attended Dursley Secondary School from 1942 to 1945. Joined the RAF as an apprentice, left in 1954 and emigrated to Canada in 1955.
My daughter is in England right now, and has visited my birth place Crawley Hill, Uley and taken hundreds of pictures and video.
Would love to hear from lost friends, and school mates.

Whilst looking at canal narrowboats for sale recently I noticed one with reconditioned Lister 12/2 diesel engine for sale. This reminded me of when we lived in Wotton-under-Edge and was a keen young golfer at Stinchcombe Hill GC and got my first job at the Dursley Gazette. I was leaving the clubhouse one Sunday evening in 1974 when in the darkness I could see a grass fire out near the 9th hole on the coarse. I rode my motorbike up the road towards the Listers home when I was flagged down by an old gentleman who turned out to be Sir Percy Lister. He asked me for lift to go over to see the fire and proceeded to jump on the back of my bike. We carefully negotiated the rough and sand bunkers and visited the small grass fire before returning back to Sir Percys home. He thanked me profusely for the exciting pillion ride and invited me in to meet Lady Lister and have a pot of tea. I said I needed to get home and said goodbye but years later regretted not joining him for tea and getting to know a little more about this wonderful man. Perhaps we should buy that boat with one of his engines in when we semi retire and come back to England for the summers and explore the wonderful heritage of the inland waterways.

Hi - I just stumbled on this site and have spent the last few hours just reading. I was at school in the 70's at Highfield's C of E with Mr Gale as Headmaster. Then went onto Rednock in 1975 - starting in set 'C' and in Berkeley House. Many teachers including Mrs Reynolds (sports) and another one called Gill - can't remember her surname!! Brilliant times in the 6th Form, so many fantastic memories of the parties, save the green crisp and boundary patrol as a sixth former. Anyone remember me, please contact x

My mother's maiden name was Tippetts and I am trying to find out anything about the Tippetts who lived in Dursley and the surrounding area in the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries. I am visiting Dursley this weekend to have a look around.

I found your site quite by accident while doing a search for Captain George Augustus Graham. I thoroughly enjoyed the article on this gentleman and look forward to returning to spend time perusing the rest of your wonderful site.
