    Hello. I was intrigued to see this photo of the Grose & Norman workers. I am wondering if this Grose was related to Joseph Grose (from St James), the local bicycle and motor car pioneer. I am related to Joseph Grose – he married my great great aunt Mary Stanley. My Stanley family history research has revealed quite strong connections to St Peter’s Church, Black Lion Hill, and Marefair. Many thanks in advance. Very best regards, Alan
