  • David Mitchell is No. 25, (next to me No. 24).  Brian Phelps is No. 26.

    Trevor Hart, many thanks for Telecoms enabling me to contact Grays after 50 years!  Much obliged to this website to facilitate X

  • I think No. 25 is David Mitchell who lived in Wash Road.  He went to Australia  in the 60s.

    By Alan. Taylor (21/03/2015)
  • No. 10 is definitely Colin Markin, he is my husband’s cousin.

    By Cheryl Markin (21/02/2015)
  • No.16 is Mr Pikesley and he was a school Governor. Just the name is spelt wrongly in the pic.

    By Isabel Smith (14/06/2014)

  • I think 31 is my Brother-in-law Raymond Petty.

    By Janet Petty née Markin (03/05/2013)
  • I beliieve Tracy Bradford, 05/06/12 is in error as to where her Grandparents Irene and Les lived and suggest it was in Church Rd., the third house from the corner, next door to the Brummell familly. 

    It is now number 6 but the houses were re-numbered some years ago. Irene was quite well known as she frequently called on the local properties as a Jehovahs Witness. The last time I saw Les he was living in a flat in the new town.

    By W.H.Diment (24/02/2013)
  • I am positive no 49 is Pat Shepherd

    By Brenda Gary (23/02/2013)
  • Love to Tracy, because I am sorting out photos for next library meeting as well.

    By Roger Wicking (07/10/2012)
  • Hi Roger, I saw your photo in the 1958 Laindon High Road School would love to have been at the rock and roll weekend, especially if dad was still here today. I have got some photographs of dad (Collin Wells) and me about 5 years ago, there’s not many though. Would you like to see them? If not! Not to worry.

    By Tracey Bradford (06/10/2012)

  • Hi Roger, thanks for the comment. If you know me and my twin sister Heather, I should know you the name Roger rings a bell.

Colin and Les and their dad Les used to drink in Prince of Wales Pub in Wash Rd. Irene passed away sorry to say long before my dad Colin, she used to work in the Prince of Wales early in the mornings as cleaner. My dad’s brother Les is alive an kicking and well. If anybody else new my dad I would love to hear your comments. I have a twin sister Heather Wells.

    By Tracey Bradford née Wells (24/09/2012)
  • I think 12 is Colin Wells, who I knew only as a Piano player of rock’n’roll when he was married; as I was.

    By roger (26/06/2012)
  • Hi Tracey, I remember your dad; sorry to hear he passed away.  I remember his brother Les and their dad Les; he used to drink in the Prince of Wales.

     I lived in Royston Avenue and Colin lived in Church Road .

    Is Irene still alive?

    By Keith Nock (26/06/2012)
  • Can anybody tell me if number 12 on the photograph is Colin Wells, he is my father. He also had a brother called Lesley Wells or Les Wells he was a few years older then him. 

    I would love to know as my father Colin wells passed away last year. Please would love to know if it was him.

    Thank you

  • I also forgot to say My Dad and his brother were pupils at Laindon Highroad School. They lived in Wash Road near the Prince of Wales pub with their mum Irene Wells and dad also Les Wells.

    I also went to Laindon school in 1980.

  • Hi Ian. Nina is correct number 7 is me sitting next to Mick Page, Richard is second very close and Chris third having another senior moment well done every one this site is great.

    By Brian Cordell (11/01/2012)
  • I ‘m still not convinced on Number 7 on this page, although it looks a bit like Brian Cordell I have, like Gloria, some doubts on it being definitely him. Also Christine has identified the same 7 as being Billy Anderson. Who is right?

    Editor: I will see if I can get Brian to confirm.

    By Richard Haines (02/01/2012)
  • Hi No.19 is Michael Cowman he’s my brother. I know we have differant surnames mine being Card and his Cowman but he is my brother and he lives in Lincolnshire now.

    By patricia cash nee card (31/12/2011)
  • No 21 is Tommy Latchford, 50 is Ann Dolton, 43 is Josie Collins. 42 is Heather Tyler and 44 is Kathy Simpson No 7 is Billy Anderson ( had a ‘senior moment’ earlier and couldn’t remember his surname!!

    Editor: Can you pleas check 7 has been confirmed as Brian Cordell

    By Christine Hutchings (26/12/2011)
  • Gooday Ken, Possibly he is still here, I did check out a Real Estate Office called Quinns a few years back to see if it was Stan. I Cannot recall a Car Yard with that name but that does not mean he did not have one of course. There are a stack of S Quinn in WA phone book. He might have gone back to UK.

    By Eric Pasco (23/12/2011)
  • Gday Eric, so Stan may be living here in Oz somewhere, I did hear a rumour about that many years ago, something about him having a car yard maybe?

    By Ken Page (22/12/2011)
  • No. 36 is Daphne Flegg and I am definitely No. 34

    By Maureen James (née Schofield) (21/12/2011)
  • 49 maybe Pat Sheppard????

    I Recon 20 is Stan Quinn

    By Ken Page (21/12/2011)
  • I agree no 20 is Stan Quinn. Stan lived just around the corner from me in Sandringham Road and I remember he had a huge collection of lead soldiers, forts, tanks, the whole lot in the loft of his house. I also bumped into Stan in Perth, Australia back in 1966, I had been here 2 weeks and he for only a few days. I have never seen him since.

    His Nan also had a house in Kent St (now theLaindon Link) which backed onto our house in Essex Rd.

  • Sorry had to have a little giggle at the” Susan Andrea” Thats me not making myself clear, No 2 is definatly not Susan Andrea ))))

    Editor: It is this sort of misunderstanding that makes my job such fun.

    By Gloria Sewell (17/12/2011)
  • No.2 There were a lot of them, but I think this one is Susan Andrea?

    Could 39 be Divina Savage with her lovely long red hair?

    By Gloria Sewell (15/12/2011)
  • I think you will find that No. 7 is Brian Cordell (sitting next to Micky Page). They are also sitting together on the 1958 photo Page 12, Nos. 12 and 14.

    Editor: I will speak to my son-in-law to ask his uncle Brian if it is him.
