Following its good example thus set, the Register has sought information from oversea, relative to Medford, Staffordshire.
We applied at the British Consulate in Boston and were told It must be a small place, as there is no post office of that name in our list, and were advised to write to Staffordshire County Council.
Doing so, we were in due time in receipt of the following:—
Meaford—Staffordshire. 27th October, 1921.
I have your letter of the 10th instant desiring information with regard to the above.
I do not think I can do better than send you the enclosed extract from Kelly's Directory of this County.
The enclosed three pictures may also be of interest to you.
Yours faithfully, Eustace Joy, M. A.
Meaford is a very small village and hamlet near the river Trent, about 1 1/4 miles north-north-west from Stone station, on the Colwich and Stoke section of the North Staffordshire railway, in the Kibblestone quarter of Ston
