Alison Saunders. Hi — Having ;looked at the cencus, it seems a close ancestor and family lived at Fulham Road and it looks like it was a public house ……can anyone tell me what it was called and also whether there would be any photos anywhere. Seems to be Mandaloun Restaurant and Wyndhams butchers now. This is in Kensington and Chelsea so probably best starting point is their archives. They will have directories, maps and rate books. Good luck in your quest. The Goat in boots was at Fulham Road, a very old historic pub, that was called the Goat up to He and previous owners of the site are described as beer retailers.
Perhaps they sold beer to pubs and shops etc. Can anyone tell me the the connection between Myles Coverdale, the bible translator, and the Primary School, in Shepherds Bush, apparently named after him? The Borough of Hammersmith had two public swimming pools. The libraries have a blog with illus. Thanks for that info — I assumed they ran a pub but maybe they sold beer to pubs as you suggested…. Has anyone come across a teacher by the name of Lillian Emmeline Martin.
She is on the reg as teacher living in east sheen av Barnes where did she teach? It was a mixed school. At the junction of Filmer and Munster rd lies Swift St on the corner of which is a bakers shop. I lived in Swift St. There are pictures of the buildings on both websites.
Thanks for all your information. I hope to visit it sometime soon. Kind Regards, Lynne. Does anyone know anything about a lady called Victoria Maud Polson names maybe the wrong way round. She was a book keeper for an electrical company in when she had my dad James wyse Polson. Her address was castle Street or road Fulham. He was then fostered out to lady in Brighton. Dad passed away 12 years ago and we have never been able to find anything out. Electrical company, could be absolutely anywhere?
Looking for photos with st Edmunds rc comprehensive winning west London cup in or 78,would really appreciate your help. HI — do you know details of any factories in the Lilly Road area of Fulham that manufactured or worked with dyes, leather, rubber, textiles, or paints by any chance please? I have found via Find A Grave where a relative is buried.
I wrote to LBHF to ask if they had any contact information for this grave, wrote a letter asking for it to be forwarded with my details of the connection. I have drawn a blank with no replies from either. She was brought up in an orphanage and a half brother killed in WW1 was the only relative she claimed to know of. Is there a way of finding out the owners of this grave? It appears to be well tended. Can you give any names of the relatives mentioned to look up, dates, places, occupations or do you want to keep names unknown to researchers.
If you find the relatives you mention in Ancestry you can send a message to people researching that family tree. Hello, I am searching my maternal grandmothers family, she was an orphan.
Wikipedia:List of online newspaper archives - Wikipedia
The only definite I have of her is a school photograph which has a chalk board at the front stating Waterloo Street School Class 1. She had a brother she lost contact with before they were adults. I could not find a record of her brother. Can anyone help me please? Searching since Regards Sheila. One of our regulars on this page has researched Waterloo Street School and states that the registers are held at the London Metropolitan Archive.
Without names, dates and possible addresses it is difficult to suggest how to proceed. If you would like to leave names, dates, other useful information be happy to look up on Ancestry for you and then whatever else may be able to find elsewhere. Firstly thanks to all for the great work done on here — always a fascinating read. She died from septicaemia in Western Hospital, Seagrave Rd in They also have no records of her husband, my grandfather Albert Ballard Wall, who sadly committed suicide a little while after.
Can anyone help please? Also, I have heard that the Wall family may have had a pawnbrokers shop in Greyhound Rd? Thanks for your time. Thanks for your help. They were both born in and lived in Fulham, but I guess not everyone has burial records. Thanks again. I am trying to establish where he would have gone to school as these would have been his primary school years. What would have been the closest school to this street during this period?
Or is there somewhere you could direct me where there may be records I could look into? I believe it may have been a Catholic School he attended. Kind Regards, NR. The nearest school to Quarrendon would have been Peterborough Primary school, but this is not specifically a Roman catholic school this was in Clancarty Road with an entrance in Studdridge Street the other catholic schools are 1 along the New Kings Road, the Church of the Holy cross ,Ashington Road and 2 the other side of the Wandsworth Bridge Road the Church of our Lady of the Perpetual succour , Stephendale Road.
You can email me on talia dot shadwell at reachplc. Do you know when Rayleigh Road, W14 ceased to exist? I have found records that it was still in existence in so it could be war damage? Would you also know what is in its place now? And where would I look to find photos of it in the s? Any help greatly appreciated. I think it changed in the mid to late 40s. Before it was called Rayleigh Road it was called Wharton Road. My family came from there too.

They ere on the , and censuses. Various houses but Nos 65, 23, 59 and Do you know if the houses in Lakeside Road are the same or have they been rebuilt.? The houses are still the same. I went there last year. They are four or five storey town houses. My family lived at various houses too; 95, 96, and others from through late s. How interesting. The males in our family were mainly labourers, corner cutters, coal porter, machine reeler. The women were laundresses. I only asked about the occupations as my great grandfather was a paper hanger and used to hire lots of local men.
I had noticed that a fair few of the males in and around Rayleigh Road were paper hangers so just wondered if yours were. Yes, you should go. My great, great aunt lived at number 23 in It seems to have changed names a few times. It later became Lakeside Road and,I believe, it still exists according to google maps. Hope this helps! When did they live there? My aunt was called Rebecca Bustard and this is her address on her wedding certificate in Oct She married an Austrian man, a hairdresser, named Jean Muller.
They left for Paris not long after that. She had previously been an acrobatic dancer in Paris. It looks like quite an affluent area so I presume she was in service? It seems to me that many families occupied each of those houses. I assume a floor each. Today the street is a mixture of slightly tatty rented houses still split into flats with others entire houses with all four of five floors incl cellar and attic and looking quite smart.
A nice quiet road. She was poor, well certainly by the time I came along. I have been researching my fathers family for a few years now but am having difficullty getting beyond his birth. I dont know if we are related but my Grandother lived at Rayleigh road in the year my dad was born. Her name was Ellen Smith but she was called Nellie. Three more children were born at that address. My dad never talked about his childhood but before he died he told me that he had been put into care.
I know the rest of the family then moved to surbiton in Surrey. Older children remained in Shepherds bush because I can remember visiting an aunt and uncle in Shepherds bush as a child. Probably not related, I think. My family were at 42, 70, 72 and 95 in Have you checked out the other smith families in the street? I find it fascinating. Are you looking on ancestry. That is my source of information. There is also something called the London Metropolitan Archives which has various records. Their enquiry team are very helpful. The details are: or ask. Does anybody know which laundry it was likely to be and where can I find any records of the Laundry please.
Does anyone know the location of the Hammersmith Citadel as it is pictured and I would be interested to know if it is still standing. The photo depicts members along with girl guides, were the two organisations linked locally? Kind regards Paul Sutton-King. My great grandfather was working there in Also, do you have any records of a football team called Hever United, in the Fulham area in the early 20th century?
Thanks, Chris. I am researching my family tree on Ancestry. From looking at census I believe that she was born around in Fulham. There is rumour that there was secrets of her childhood. If so I would love to hear from you It was run by by mother and father.
More titles to consider
I have also been surprised at how few photographs appear to exist of the Bradmore Lane market. As a consequence, I have decided to establish a Facebook group page to remember and celebrate the market and a part of Hammersmith history that spanned nearly 70 years. Re:the Rotunda, Shepherds Bush. She sued Robert Taylor for breach of promise and was mentioned in a home office report in as a coffee shop proprietor at the Rotunda.
In she was sent to Newgate Prison for her part in the infamous Wills Forgery Scandal after she had married my g. This is another example of where searching the British online Newspaper archive will pay dividends, its quite cheap and very useful. The Law case should also be able to tracked down fairly easily. It is stated that Taylor has left the country.

He was reported to be 21 when he was killed, meaning that he was born about Address:- His last known address, which led to his being listed on the Dewsbury Cenotaph, was Ivy Cottage, Briestfield, where he is reported to have been a boarder with Henry Watson, a coal miner, and his wife. Parents and Siblings: — Nothing is known about his family background; he is said to have been born in Hammersmith, at that time in Middlesex, now part of London, but it has not been possible to identify him among the many boys called William Wright.

All I know is that his name is John Arthur Cocks.
He is roughly around years old and lived in Putney,Wandsworth and married my mum Louise Belinda Blanchard in the year ? I hope this helps and I look forward to hearing from you. Putney and Wandsworth our outside our area but someone reading these pages may come up with something relevant. From personal experience I can tell you it will take some hard work and time to track down a person within the year rule. The latter will give you more info about your father, there will also be witnesses who may still be alive and have knowledge of where your Dad is.
Obviously original documents are the easiest ie that your Mum may have or have had. Free BMD here allows you to search for them online you can then request copies for a fee. The other approach is to use an online search company such as They will charge you a fee but you could end up with a number of addresses worth investigating and you may get info such as job type which again could be useful. If you search J Cocks in London entry 22 looks interesting so may be worth paying.

I have searched online for a while but have had no luck as yet.

The scheme will involve a rear extensionto knccrease trading area at ground floor level, refurbishment of the existing timber shopfronts and the removal of the existing aluminium shopfront in no32 replacing this with a timber shopfront that is more in keeping with the age of the property.

Hello, I was placed in Nazareth House in Hammersmith in till , along with two of my brothers, Barry and Jimmy. Can anyone give me any information please?

I loved going and remember it as a happy place with clean, well fed children. But in the light of all that is going on I doubt my memories. My mum always gave me money to buy sweeties for the children and we usually went to the park. I just remember it as a happy place. I hope my memories are right.

When you first went in through the door there were racks of records. The sales counter was at the back of the shop. Looking at the counter, to the right were listening booths. You could take a record to the counter and they would put it on a turntable. You then went into a booth and could listen on headphones. On a Saturday my Father always took me to this record shop such joy and the smell of vinyl when entering!! We never left without buying an LP. We had quite a collection of records! Sadly, when my Father passed way my brother who was clearing the loft came across them.
He will keep them now. If you go to my page and look in the shepherds bush album, you will fing photos of the market and WG Stores where many brought their records. I had a soft spot for them for that reason. Hi Please can anyone help me locate Caroline Place, Fulham, where it may have been?
