Richard Billingham photographer

Postby Dennis » Fri Mar 16, 2012 12:14 pm

I've just come across this photographer, Richard Billingham, born in Cradley Heath in 1970, who's specialized in photos of the Black Country:

There's quite a lot on Google about him. I imagine our genealogical Billinghams connect with him.

I saw a programme on TV about Richard, he had the most appalling upbringing, but was a very talented artist and made his way out of Cradley Heath, went to Art School either in Birmingham or London, some of his Art Work is often for sale on line.

This is them here:-

Richards father Raymond Billingham was born in 1931

BILLINGHAM, Raymond
Registration district Dudley County Staffordshire
Year of registration 1931Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Mother's maiden name Horner
Volume no 6B Page no 1278

Think the Horner is a typo and should be HOMER.

Raymonds brother Lawrence Billingham was born in 1925

Name: BILLINGHAM, Lawrence
Registration district Dudley County: Staffordshire
Year of registration 1925 Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Mother's maiden name Homer
Volume no 6B Page no1595

Lawrence died in 2000

Name: BILLINGHAM, Lawrence
Registration district Sandwell
County Staffordshire
Year of registration 2000
Month of registration August
Date of Birth 22 March 1925
District no 0701A
Reg no A64
Ent no 217
DOR 800



Lawrence and Raymonds parents were Hilda Homer and Nelson Billingham, they kept the grocers shop in Meadow Walk, Cradley Heath in the 1940's. Before that they kept a shop on the corner of Upper High Street and Meredith Street Cradley Heath opposite where the new Salvation Army building is now.

Here's their marriage

Name: BILLINGHAM, Nelson
Registration district Dudley County: Staffordshire
Year of registration 1923 Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Spouse's last name Homer
Volume no 6B Page no 1995

Name: HOMER, Hilda C
Registration district Dudley County: Staffordshire
Year of registration 1923 Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Spouse's last name Billingham
Volume no 6B Page no 1995

Nelson Billingham died in 1979

Name: BILLINGHAM, Nelson
Registration district Stourbridge
County: Worcestershire
Year of registration 1979
Quarter of registration Oct-Nov-Dec
Date of Birth15 August 1895
Volume no 33
Page no 0758

At the time of his death he and his wife Hilda were living with Lawrence in Bearmore Road, Cradley Heath.

I think this is Hilda's death

Name: BILLINGHAM, Hilda Clare
Registration district Dudley
County Staffordshire
Year of registration 1988
Month of registration April
Date of Birth 1901
Volume no 33
Page no 466

Raymond Billingham was married twice, his first wife was Dorothy Hall, they married in 1953 and had two sons. They divorced and Raymond went on to marry Richards mother.
