    Hi. There is a Facebook page for Rugeley people. If you join Facebook (its free) you can ask on there. I lived a few doors away and the name seems vaguely familiar.

Family History:Hall by Jan M Hall (Member 10250146) on 27-Jul-2010
I am trying to research my great grand parents who came from the Rugeley Area. My Grandmother was called Nellie Hall born 5th August 1888, unfortunately I have a short birth certificate which does not give her parent's names. It is a possibility her father was James Hall who lived at Brereton Rugeley in 1901, somewhere called Etchinghill? He was a coal miner at that time. My grandmother Nellie mar... more >>   
  • Re: Family History:Hall by Jaycee (Member 10250618) on 9-Aug-2010
    Can't help with the family name, but can confirm that Etching Hill is an area of Rugeley. Slitting Mill is a small hamlet very close to there and has one pub, The Horns. St. Michaels Church, Brereton is still there.

  • Re: Family History:Hall by Andrew Harvey (Member 10248693) on 20-Aug-2010
    If you use Google Earth, it was a very good day when they did Rugeley and Brereton.
    All the places you talk about show up very clearly

  • Re: birch family in rugeley by Andrew Harvey (Member 10248693) on 13-Jun-2010
    Up until 1964 I lived in Birch Lane, Brereton(56) and the Birch family coincidentally lived opposite.
    I remember Alan Birch and I think he had a cousin Peter who would be that sort of age.

    If anyone remembers me, I live in Manila, Philippines these days.

    I just found Tom Shipley who lived in Coalpit Lane, and he is now ... more >>

Micheal Donovan by Steve BRUCE (Member 10232963) on 22-Oct-2008
I lived in Rugeley until I joined the Army in 1971, I'm particularly interested in finding out what happened to Micheal Donovan who I rescued from drowning in the swimming pool at Fair oak school around 1967/8. I got a bit of an award and a mention in the Rugeley times but sadly never spoke to Micheal. I'm not even sure what school he went to, I dont think it was Aelfgar. If here is anyone out the... more >>

    Hi Michael,
    I hope you're well. I work for Newsnight on BBC2 and we're making a film for the programme about the decline of local papers. I noticed your message about saving someone from drowning - well dones! - and how it got written up in the Rugeley Times, which I know a little. Have you (or family) still got that cutting from the paper? Could we come and talk to you about it? I guess if the p... more >>

  • Re: Micheal Donovan by Steve BRUCE (Member 10232963) on 7-Jul-2009
    Hi Stephen, no I dont have the cutting from the Rugeley times and I dont suppose my mum will either. Yes I dont mind speaking to you about it you can contact me on 07903304455. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards

    Steve Bruce

  • Re: Micheal Donovan by lorraine (Member 10241266) on 4-Oct-2009
    If you know that date of the newspaper article, you can go along to Rugeley library and they have all the copies of the Rugeley Times newspaper upstairs in the reference library. Its worth a try.
