My great Uncle was licensee of the Trafalgar Arms, Coventry in the 1950s. His name was George Rollason [aka George Welch Rollason]. I have a couple of pictures of George which were taken in the bar with his daughter. Her name was Jane Margaret [nee Welch Rollason] Foskin. We're not certain, but her name/her husbands may have also appeared as licensee at some point. My cousin remembers the pub very well and spent a lot of time there.
Not sure of the date he first took over, but it would be after 1952. He was definitely there in 1955 and he died in 1967.  *
