    Hiya Roscoe...I live in Garston and I am 50 yds from Brodie Avenue....named after John Alexander Brodie...although the City Engineer, he was famous , and made A LOT of money because he invented the FOOTBALL NET and the Cricket net...even though he made all that money he still stayed on at his job....his Football Net was first used by Nottingham Forest in about 1889....check it out on google...and from that day, the money rolled in......as Brodie Avenue was named after him , I tend to think he may have died here in Garston.....allan

    Question John A Brodie

    Hi just to confirm, JA died 16 Nov 1934 and his ashes are scattered at Anfield Cemetery. Special permission was given to do this. he is my great grandfather. I was wondering what your connection is. Are you related too? I am in NZ and am having trouble finding where his wife is buried. Hope to hear from you soon.

    John Brodie once lived at Ullet Road:

    When my uncle was small, his family lived in the second floor of the house as it was then converted in to flats.
