Hi
I am trying to find information on my great great grandfather who was the father to William smith born in 1862 who was a glass cutter and lived in bordesley. My GGF had a glass factory maybe in small Heath or Aston and owned rows of houses in several streets. Would really appreciate some suggestions or advice ion how to find info on the factory and houses
Thanks
Sue

Have you tried google - 'glass manufacturers + Aston + 1860's' or similar? Historical Directories are online, listing various trades and occupations, including on ancestry if you have a subscription. Or, again using google, find a local history society for the area you're interested in, and email them with your query.
