C. H. BAYLISS
Charles Henry Bayliss started his own coal delivery business in the early 1930's, later known as "C H Bayliss Coal & Anthracite Merchant", dealing from St Vincent Street, Birmingham. Coal was taken from barges at Monument Lane Wharf then delivered to our customers across Birmingham.
"Charlie Bayliss I worked for, at Sheepcote Street. I still know his two sons - Charlie and Johnny. We knew each other well; we became friends years afterwards. Johnny runs a garage now, up in Bearwood ... Charlie was a loverly little man - bright Toby jug face - Charlie Bayliss. Used to wear a trilby hat - yes, pleasant memories of old Charlie."
