4WardEver UK

4WardEver UK was launched in 2006 by Tippa Naphtali the cousin of Mikey Powell, who died in the custody of West Midlands police, Birmingham, UK in September 2003. Its purpose is to provide profiles, news, event details, resources and useful information, appeals, and more in relation to deaths in custody and other injustices. 4WardEver is run entirely by a small volunteer team, and funded from voluntary contributions and donations. We support the call for reform within police, penal and mental health institutions in the UK and internationally.

    You mentioned a lot alongside your twin brother, I’d love to know more about what happened in there, and if the writing on the walls has any facts, on walls in the gym quite grim, are the names correct?

    I was at this approved school 1959-1964. Age 10/15 years. St Bedes House my brother was in St Josephs.
    I wrote a book published in 1973: “They Put Me Inside” Tony Grestone.

    A whole chapter describes my time there and the regime that existed. The school has the name “St Pauls” for editorial reasons.
    It is out of print now. Google it. There are still copies out there.

    I remember the Mills Twins: I believe they had another brother there too. I recall that the twins were boxers though that may have been rumour.
