I have had so much pleasure seeing all the photos and reading all the stories.

Hello, I have just discovered these marvellous photos. The little girl at the end of the middle row is me. I lived in Shipley at the time in a house called, 'The Gardens'. I think the year was 1951 as I left Mapperley school when I was 7 years old. I can't tell you how wonderful it has been to look through all these photos and see my lovely old friends whom I haven't seen or heard of since the day I left. Thank you.

Your site is very impressive, full of interesting stuff, and you are to be commended for all your work on it. Well done.
It was nice to read about Mapperley Village in Ilkeston Life newspaper as my grandmother was born in the village and may still have a relation there who could be her great niece, I think her grandma Rose was my grandmothers sister. My grandmother is buried in the church yard under the name of Gertrude Stenson her maiden name was Birkin and the desk in the church was given by her a long while ago, it was still there about 5 years ago. I wish I could be there with you for your celebrations but can't as I live in Cornwall. Wishing you all the best.
