    Central Row Birmingham?

    Hello everyone,

    Does anyone know where 'Central Row' was in Birmingham UK at all please? [and yes I realise that it would probably be central in Birmingham city centre. :smilee: ]


    just trying to pinpoint where my grt grandparents lived!

    thanks for reading.

    there are old maps on here:
    https://maps.nls.uk/

    when did they live there? and can you give a few neighbouring streets from the census?

        Hi Carolyn,

        I'm not sure I haven't found them living at the property on a census.. it's more for curiosities sake, this was 1904 and by 1907 both my grt grandparents were dead.

        edit to say... Ahh I'll have a look thank you...

          ahhh they also lived on Irving Street and Bromsgrove street... and their son lived on Inge street where the 'back to backs' are. Didn't move too far then really..

          will have a look now to see if I can see that row on NLS maps..



          thank you :smilee:

                  tbh the rag market was a bit of a let down. It's just before Smithfield fish market. [if that is the one I am thinking of] St Martins Church is just behind the Bull Ring and is a beautiful building.

                      This is Pershore Street today. The only one in Britain apparently.

                        I have found it on several old maps but can't find Central Row.

                        found this website that has links to several maps:

                          I think it’s actually Centre Row? Here it is in 1891.
