A request for help from Rosemary Enright ([removed]):
I am searching for any evidence of the Russian community which I'm sure existed in Lichfield between the 1920's and early 1970's along with a Russian Orthodox Church where the funeral service of an old school mistress of mine took place.
The community seems to have disappeared entirely along with the Church. The Public Library, the Heritage Centre and the Tourist Office in Lichfield all deny any knowledge of a Russian presence in Lichfield.
I'd be go grateful if you could throw any light the matter.
