    I am interested in contacting anyone who has information about Civil Defence in Nottingham during the Second World War particularly if they know anything about the CD ambulance service (Casualty Services) at the time as my father Frederick Stephen Bromwich belonged to this branch during the War. I have a photograph of him in his uniform with what looks like an officer’s cap and another group picture of ‘Squad 2’ (men) and of a football team of Squad 2 including him in ordinary clothes. I have looked at Nottmshire archives but all their material deals with council decisions and lacks details on either names or activities. Can anyone help with possible sources?

    Dear Bulwell Family History Society, I am researching my family and I am looking how to find out the dates of when my forbearer owned or operated the Scots Grey Inn in the 1800’s. Can anyone help me please. His son, also named Charles Smith, immigrated to Australia in 1862 and I would like to know more about his parents who owned or operated this establishment, he is my 4th Great Grandfather. Very much appreciated. Judith Smith/Luscombe

    I am interested in information and photographs of Nottingham residents Cäcilie Hildesheim (1836-1921) and Sigismund Hamel (1824-1897), and of their family and descendants. Both were German born. Sigismund was a lace manufacturer. I am preparing biographical summaries of this family. Their children were:
    -Malvina Hamel (1857-1905), married Frederick William Rothera, solicitor and coroner (1851-1926).
    -Elisa Hamel (1859-1932), married William Froggatt Clark, timber merchant (1857-
    -Theresa Hamel (1860-1939), married Herbert Rothera, lace manufacturer and stock broker (1857-1926).
    -Caroline (Carrie) Hamel (1862-1918), Married Heinrich Hamburger (later Hamber) (1845-1912(
    -Alice Hamel (1867-1940), secretary, unmarried.
    -Florence (Frank) Hamel (1870-1957), publisher, Unmarried.
    Many of their descendants, surnamed Rothera, remained in Nottingham.

    I would be happy to share information. Perhaps the Society would assist us in making contact.
