Hello Tony, My name is Mick Holloway, I played for tunnel sports from 1966 when I was 16 years old, starting in the reserve side but progressing to the first team.

Many others, I also played for Kingstonians for a couple of seasons, also rochester way social, my fathers team Bert Holloway. Fantastic times. My e-mail address is

Dolly Cooper Dance Classes

Did anyone go to Dolly Cooper tap and ballet in he 50's and 60's? The classes were over the Pub at the bottom of Albion St. A lady in flats nearby made all the costumes for the concerts in the Assembly Rooms. We took exams for medals too. Mum (Grace) took me with my younger sister Pauline and mum's friend Bet Cottrell took her daughter Irene. We loved it but mum and Bet once got sent out because they were laughing at Pauline and Irene!

Hi

I grew up in Rotherhithe in the 60's and 70's. Did your mum go to St Saviours and St Olave's Grammar School for Girls (I attended in the 70's) in the New Kent Road? We were the sister school to St Olaves Boys Grammar School and we opened in 1903.

If this is the case you can contact the school

www.ssso.southwark.sch.uk/

or just google St Saviours and St Olaves (it is no longer a grammar school of course!).

Hope this is useful - I only just read your text so it may be too late. Huge congratulations to your Mum any way

My mother was born in Rotherhithe in 1915, and will be celebrating her 100th in November, here in New Zealand.

She tells me she went to Albion street school, then managed a scholarship to St.Olave's in Bermondsey. Is there any way I can confirm this, anywhere there may be records still available.

Driscolls

Hi There, I have a few Driscolls in my family tree and all lived in Bermondsey. The first one was a Mary Driscoll (nee Cushion) married William Driscoll - had a son Daniel b1860 and a Daughter Hannah b1862. There is also a Cathrine b1827 d1901. There is a bit of confusion as two Driscolls married two cushions at different times but am sure they are all related in some way. I have a tree on Genes Reunited and you are free to view it if it helps.

Driscolls of Rotherhithe? Family connections?

I am still on the hunt of anything to do with Driscoll's and any family relationships in this area. They were part of the Immaculate Conception church, (St Mary's?)...I think. There are some records that another family member was able to find. Her Mary Driscoll (b about 1857) married John McCarthy. Itt would seem that most of my Annie Driscoll's siblings perished of TB, or died giving birth. Of 10 children only 3 women survived to have living children, Maybank's, McCarthy's and Hollingsworths (who were reverted to maiden name Driscoll). They lived in Hanover st (1871), Clarkes Orchard, then Elephant Lane. John B 1834 ish and Kate O'Neill (Neale) died between 1901 and 1906. I am interested in any photographs of this area - and of course any Driscoll's or related families. I am sure John had brothers, at the least, who also settled in this area. Any help will be really appreciated. My G Grandmother Annie Driscoll worked in the Bermondsey area, as a convenience operator, until s
