What do we know about the Crown Attercliffe Common

I am trying to find any reference to the above Tavern run or owned by John Thomas Parkin as shown in the 1911 Census. John Thomas was my Great Grandfather and was registered there as 52 years old.

From Sheffieldforum: "The royal was on the corner of MONS street and Attercliffe common. to the best of my husbands knowledge ..the last landlord / landlady were called BARRY AND GLENDA someone else took it over when Barry and Glenda moved to worksop.

it was demolished in the late 70's early 80's and was a stone's house, the Royal was opposite the Red Lion on the other corner of Mons Street, Attercliffe. which became a doss house in the 50's [not sure if this recollection is correct – Red Lion should be the Crown? - Ted]

Blucher Street was renamed Mons Street. The location of the first major battle of WW1 replaced the previously popular Prussian General who joined Wellington at Waterloo, subsequently a hated hun. The 1903 map shows it still as Blucher Street:

In 1900 John Arthur Parkin of the Crown Inn (the son of John Thomas Parkin) was one of 23 St.Johns Ambulance men who volunteered for service at the Boer War and were passed medically fit. He was subsequently one of only six men who were actually sent out to South Africa (see cuttings):

Yes the Crown Attercliffe Common is the same one as the Crown, Carbrook. The Index has the entry for the landlord as George Rodger - the 1871 census (attached) shows him as Geo. Rodgers (joiner and publican beer house) at the Crown (Tinsley Road) opposite the Royal, run by James Barnard.

Thanks Mate

George Vitty married my father's eldest sister Elizabeth Emily Roft in 1919. He was a paitient at Napsbury Military Hospital in St Albans, Herts. It's very possible they met there she was an Auxilliary Nurse. Thanks again.
