Hi all, I was born in QB in 1956 at 27 B and although I was only small, I have vivid memories of the old place. We moved out in 1961 when I was 5, but I remember going to Charles Dickens Sch from the age of 3.
Finding this site has brought back many memories for me and will monitor the forum from now on.
Hi Martin shame you havenít had any response to your post hopefully some people might recognise your family name and start a chat going when I first found this sight it was flowing with peoples posts but slowly theyíve all dropped off my family lived at 3 stones end street nearly opposite The Ship pub I went to Charles Dickens too but your 3 years older than me and your family name isnít one I remember have you ever been back there it has changed where did your family moved too ? Come on all you queenies where are you letís have catch up and start posting again kind regards to all 🙏

I hope everyone is well and staying safe in these horrenduos times.
My dads family the mcduells and roberts lived in various addresses in queens buildings,and as i have got further with my family tree i have found other relatives lived there , also i found a photo of my uncle peter on here .

Hi lea I was born 1959 yes the good old days we didnt have much but we was happy I wouldnít change my time living in the buildings even tho there was no hot water a toilet on the balcony no central heating it we all looked out for each other hopefully a few more queenies may check in too , one good thing my cousin found me on this sight havenít seen her since 1975 , hope you stay too lea 🙏
hi mark, glad your cousin found you . the photo of my uncle i found on this site is the only one i have of him now ,i thought my late mum had some of family but couldnt find any of family photos. My dads side of the family has been easy to find because most of my nans siblings and parents lived in or around queens buildings .
One thing i miss pie mash and liquier, there was a restaurant in hastings but that closed a few years ago ,
hope you and your family stay safe
Hi lea yes all my family are safe thank you where did you say you moved too , Pie and mash I do take my mum some down when I go nothing beats that ever 👍 a dyeing trade shame , well hope you and your families stay safe 🌈
Hi Mark, the only family I can remember was Sue and Carol McKensey. Sue was a close friend of my mother ( known as Red ) at worked together. I was born in 56 and my brother Colin was in 58. I remember a steel garage in the square that a man kept his invalid carriage in. Does any one else remember it.
All keep well in these difficult times
