Was it their first names then desira? Bryon (TaffY) Roberts was at Dodmans when I worked there. I thought the business was set up
when Doddies folded by men who worked there.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

Yes it was set up when Dodmans finished. I only knew Bryon because he was at ours a lot and one of my brothers started work with them but don't know who the others were.
Bryon married Sylvia Gawthorpe and her younger sister Pauline [ I think ] went to America

I worked at Bead Engineering for 17 years. How they got the name was from the beginining of the christian names of the 4 directors who started the firm, they were:

Bryon Roberts

Eric Hales

Anthony Skerritt

Don Baxter

Hi L O B, according to Michael Walkers book. (Gaywood Park Schools) they were opened in 1939. A headline from the Lynn News reads " Schools to be proud of -Gaywood Park Buildings set new standard". That was in October 1939.
Can send pics if you are interested. There are several from 1939, 41, and 42, never know, your relative might be on one! Regards. T

Spot on.
My relative is my mum's cousin Pamela Chilvers who was born July 1927 so would have been there when it started in 1939.
She lived at 29 Wootton Road.
Would love to see any photos from that time
