Here’s a sad but important enquiry from reader Angela Kingston-Nash who’s after memories and recollections regarding her uncle Bob Brookes from Brownhills, who sadly recently passed away aged 94.
I grew up in Barnets Lane, Brownhills.
My uncle Bob Brookes recently passed away and was a much loved member of the Brownhills community so I was hoping to soon share details of his funeral via BrownhillsBob. Is that allowed?
I also wondered if any locals might know a bit more about him as a younger man before I see the vicar. He was 94 but only became mine and my mum’s uncle in his 40s. he has no other family left. Thank you.
Angela, I would be happy to share any funeral details you would like to publicise and stand ready to help, as ever.
I don’t personally recall Bob myself, but I’m sure plenty will – if you remember this gentleman, please do get in touch by commenting here or mailing me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
