I am one of many grandchildren of Frank Lawton, who started a business in 1906 of cooked meats and pork pies etc.

This shop was 1833 Pershore Road, Cotteridge.

In 1956 they celebrated its jubilee. The business continued into the early 60s.

I am very anxious to know if anyone has pictures of the shop, as I am in the process of writing about this.

You may even remember the van driven by Harold – pale green with a cream egg shape sign on the sides of the van with writing about Lawton cooked meats.

    Try “Northfield Past” on Facebook, there is loads of info there, just ask.
    They cover Northfield, Cotteridge, Kings Norton, Longbridge.

    Hi Julia, your cousin Anthony in Australia. I am building up a series of vignettes, notes and memories on my wobble and stagger through life! Most of my early part are now memories with some photos and records. I understand you have put together quite a lot in that period? Anything I can copy or view?
    I remember so much of the shop.. The frightening cellar where much of the tripe, trotters, chicken things, black pudding ( horrible to see it made.. But I still love to eat it!) And Cheeney ( spelling?) even more frightening to me at 5 yrs old!
    If we don’t put this together in a few decades it will be lost in my family
    Any help appreciated
