I wonder if anyone might be able to help with any information about ABC Bus Services of Dunham on Trent? I have encountered this operation as part of my family history research.

According to old bus tickets I have acquired the proprietors were variously M Applewhite, F B Applewhite and F F Applewhite. There is a telephone number Dunham on Trent 26. I also have 1950s pictures of Applewhite's coaches, one by Applewhite's Garage in Dunham on Trent (shown here).

I have an idea from Applewhite's I have discovered who lived in Dunham who M and FB might be but cannot trace a candidate for FF.

I'm struggling to find any information about ABC and have my fingers crossed that someone out there might be able to help.

If so, please leave a message via the 'Add a Comment' link below

Hi Peter, I can't help personally about this bus company but I know a man who can! If you visit the Classic Bus magazine Website and or send them an e-mail you'll find the readers will have some knowledge of the company and you will get responses.

When they published a letter of mine about Butler Bros in Kirkby-in-Ashfield it produced a short article and pictures. The current magazine has a photo of a bus from P J Clarke of Epperstone.
