thanks to everyone for this, yes i am on rootschat aswell.

was it not the case that some women did not get the vote until 1931 or thereabouts, if so clara would not be on the electora registers. i have her death cert in front of me and it states that she was at 6 washington street and died 3 november 1927 and that her son reg morgan registered the death in 4th november 1927 at the same address. wil look into the pub proprietor being involved int he music business.

i was not, in fact, born in birmingham, but chester, but still love the old birmingham having attended matthew boulton technical college (the new one down belgrave road) athough i do remember the old one in stephenson street (I think).

are there are on line archives for birmingham newspapers during the 1900/1920 as i am sure if clara or anyone else was being asked to play before the king at the palace they would have written about it.

i know not this thread but i have signed the petition to stop the re naming of the gun quarter (how silly)

I am digressing a lot must be my age and the fact that i have just cut the grass. if clara died in washington street would it be likely that her funeral was at st thomas and would she have been buried there. where there cremations in those days.
