I can't say I know that area Len.

Do you have the first half of your relative's postcode ?

There's a lot of traffic relating to Sandbach going on. At least one of my favourite comedians lived in the town - George Roper of 'wellies' fame.

I know George Roper died in Sandbach, Jim but when I saw him (briefly) he was in a pub, which I undertand was his, in a village called Goostrey.

Another famous name from this little town is Blaster Bates.

Staying with the military/BAOR thread, Foden and ERF trucks were, until recently made in Sandbach. Cool

Brum,

What was the relationship between Foden & ERF ? Were they family related or what ? Sure we had some Fodens in BAOR when I was there.

I see John McMillan has allready answered your question Jim.

Strictly speaking, Foden's was in Elworth, a separate village in those days.

The Foden family are buried in Elworth churchyard.

The site of the Foden works is now a care home for the elderly (I've got my bed booked !), and the ERF site is now a health centre/supermarket/Mc Donald's.
