SPRING HILL, SHEFFIELD, 1972 

The last information that I've got comes from a Kelly's Directory of 1972. Unlike the 1944 edition which lists the occupation, this latest edition merely lists the name of the householder and the number of the property.

The interesting element to this schedule is the number of people who were living here twenty eight years earlier in 1944. George Ryalls (no 5) Mathew Crehan (no7) Arthur/Archibald Siddall (no13)  James Purcell (no 15) Arthur Appleby (no 19) Harold Tingle (no 33) James Hobson (no35) Harold Morrison (no38) Bill Belfitt (no50) Arthur Bridgett (no54). were all living in the same houses as they were in 1944. In total they account for 10 of the 28 property's on the road. In fact two of the residents I actually knew when I moved into the district eight years later - Harold Tingle (no 33) and Bill Belfitt (no50). 

Those entries marked with an asterisk were also living in the properties in 1958 as it was then that a new underlease was drawn up for the six houses numbered 31 - 41 Spring Hill. (In 1958 41 Spring Hill was occupied by a Charles Frederick Ernest Williams and a Alice Maud Williams). The information in italics is additional to that found in the Kelly's Directory. By 1976 Wilfred Wall had left 37 Spring Hill and the house was now occupied by a John Philip and Anthea Coe (until 1979)

There is an arial photograph of the Spring Hill area that was taken circa 1980
