38 Union St
'St Margarets', 38 Union Street, Beeston - The Glover Home up to mid-1920s

After their move to The Lilacs, the house was acquired by the painter and decorator, William Jacques, as his business base and family home
From about 1938, it became the home of Beeston Head Teacher, Arthur Cossons and his wife and it was here that his son Neil and daughter Hilda lived throughout their childhood.
After Arthur's death in 1963, with the family moving away, Edith, his widow, moved elsewhere.
The property was then acquired by Beeston Conservative Club and was demolished, becoming part of its carpark (and now part of the approach to the Tesco service entrance and carpark)

The Lilacs
The Lilacs, Acacia Walk, Beeston
The home of Philip Wells Glover and his second wife, Heloise Ethel (née Rowell), from the mid-1920s.

The house was purchased by Cecil Wilfred Plackett in 1955, after the Glovers' deaths.
It was acquired by Broxtowe Council in the 1970s and was demolished to become the site of sheltered acommodation bearing the same name.
