Hunt for memories of All Saints and help on mystery of Old Boys football team


Can anyone name these members of All Saints Old Boys Football Club 1909-1910

Former pupils of a Black Country school are compiling a history of the area around it and looking for people’s memories and help in identifying who was in an Old Boys football team more than 110 years ago.

The local history book on the All Saints area of Wolverhampton will cover the period from around 1800 up to the present day and will cover all aspects of life in the All Saints community.

This will include schooling, work, religion, health, leisure etc. over that time. 

It will follow on from the Rough Hills book by one of the authors, All Saints School ex-pupil Derek Mills, published in 2018, and give the All Saints area specifically the attention it deserves.

The authors will include another former All Saints School pupil Clive Holes.

They would welcome contributions from anyone who lives or has lived in the area or had close connections with its schools, factories, shops, clubs or institutions such as The Royal Hospital. 

These contributions might include personal memories, magazines, newspaper cuttings and photos of experiences, local characters and events which took place in the All Saints area. 

They might, for example, have memories of St Joseph’s RC School, Grove Primary School and the Christopher Groveland Youth Club. 

If anyone, for example, can help with information about the photograph of All Saints Old Boys football team taken in 1910, they would be delighted.

People interested in contributing, should email: mdr2849@gmail.com or text: 07766430896 so that they can discuss how the contributions can be organised.
