As far aLloyd'sds Bank goes, I'm sure what you and SB say is quite right as somewhere in the back of my mind I remember reading what you say. By the same token I'm sure that I read that the branch in Deritend was the first branch in Birmingham.

Quote: Sheldonboy wrote in post #19559I saw an interesting plaque on the wall of some cottages in the Black Country Museum Now although I believe it to be true that the first branch of Lloyds bank was opened in Oldbury. John Taylor and Sampson Lloyd started their private banking business in Dale End Birmingham in 1765. There is a Blue Plaque on a wall, near MacDonalds stating that that was the site of the original Lloyds bank. Any theories welcome.
This is the Blue Plaque in Dale End. It looks like both places claim to be the origin of Lloyds Bank.
