Subject: Heeley - Sheffield Blitz

This subject I hope will get some good response !
My paternal grandparents, James Herbert and Charlotte Stevenson lived at 100 Slate Street.
A bomb which fell on houses on Olive Grove Road to the rear of Slate Street, damaged my grandparents house to the extent that they had to move out and live with my parents.
Is there anyone viewing this forum who had relatives in that location and have been handed down stories of what happened that night.
My Grandparents apparently came to my parents house covered in dirt etc from the blast, with just the clothes they were wearing and their canary in it's cage !
Upon seeing them and realising that my Mom's parents lived at 279 Gleadless Road close to Slate Street, he went from Highfields through those darkened streets to check on their safety. That must have been some journey, in the dark, with bomb damage all around and folks just made homeless wandering the streets.
