Ettingshall is an area of Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England, and is a ward of Wolverhampton City Council.

Ettingshall was mentioned as an ancient manor in the Domesday Book of 1086. The surrounding areas of Priestfield, Parkfield, Lanesfield and Millfields are believed to have been property of the manor.

From the 18th century onwards, Ettingshall became heavily industrialised as a result of the Industrial Revolution. Until 1980, an area of wasteland on the southside of Millfields Road was the location of the Bilston Steelworks and old Bilston quarries. Ettingshall Road was the location for Cables and Instruments, Dixon's Wallcoverings and Tools and Machines. Spring Road is the location of Tarmac Roadstone and NET Thompson. Ettingshall was the location for the manufacture of the 240 ton boiler drum with a length of 122 feet in 1965. This was the heaviest load carried by British Rail. It was transported to Eggborough in Yorkshire.

John Hill, Brenda's husband notified me of Ronald Frederick's death and funeral.
They met with Neil and Mark and Mark's family together with Ron's widow Sheila Lavalin.
