London and Middlesex / Re: King Edward Walk Southwark in World War 2
« on: Wednesday 08 August 18 22:57 BST (UK)  »
Hi,
I found this site https://www.citylab.com/design/2016/05/london-bomb-damage-maps-blitz/481350/
It would appear that the row of houses that includes number 23 was classified damaged but repairable at cost. I assume that means it is likely that the Bindens must have had to seek accommodation elsewhere at the most by 1941.
 My Dad is curious and I would like to be able to tell him if they lived at any other address pre Wincott Street ( which is where Ben Binden died in 1951).
Thank you,
Cathie

Thatís great,
Wincott Street is the next address we know of and my Dad is sure they moved there having been bombed out of their home- along with the very robust budgie.
 I have to assume they moved to another address between though I canít think where.

Cheers,
Cathie

Thank you Carol,

Yep, a while ago now I looked at that and can see that two bombs are recorded to have fallen on King Edward Walk between 7/10/1949 and 6/6/1941 as well as others nearby.

I am still curious as to whether the street numbers changed when the street was rebuilt as the current number 23 predates WW2.

London and Middlesex / King Edward Walk Southwark in World War 2
« on: Wednesday 08 August 18 15:31 BST (UK)  »
I have found my grandmotherís family living at 23 King Edward Walk in the 1939 Census, namely Benjamin S Bindenís family and His inlaws. The story passed down the family was that they returned home after an air raid to find the house destroyed, only the budgie survived!
 I am hoping that someone might know if it was this house that was bombed, when I looked on google street view I can see number 23 still stands but the other side of the road is newer, is it possible that the street was renumbered after the war? If not then I must assume they moved to another address that was subsequently bombed.
Thank you.

Shropshire / Photographer J F Wood, More Info Please
« on: Monday 10 April 17 20:20 BST (UK)  »
I have just been reunited with a photograph that belonged to my late mother that I am pretty sure she referred to as being of her Grandmother Alice Elizabeth Pugh (born 1896) as a child. I would be grateful if anyone has any information on the photographer "J F Wood Halfway House Shrewsbury".

The photo is now my avatar

Thank you for looking.

Wicklow / Re: William Dalton and Elizabeth Doyle of Ballinagee, where next?
« on: Tuesday 13 September 16 00:12 BST (UK)  »
I have found another child of this couple courtesy of the daltondatabank site, Mary Dalton was born 18 November 1886 at Martins Cottages, this time mother Eliza's maiden name is given as Gargan. Elizabeth's premarital name on her children's registration forms has so far been given as Dardin, Gargan and Whelan. On the registration of her marriage her name is Whelan, her Father Dargon.
The only deatail that doesnt seem to tally is that on his military record William gives his birthplace as St Peters, though as he lived away from his family since the age of 8 or 9, it might be expected that he would be unsure.

In 1901 census, only a year after Elizabeth's death there, only one Dalton is living in Martins Cottages, William Dalton a batchelor Labourer aged 40 is a lodger at number 7.

Hi LH,
Thank you, I was so distracted by my son's first day at nursery that I completely forgot the registers were coming online. You must have done a lot of searching to dig that out- I'm very grateful to you.
I have been buried on the website all afternoon now and have found...
Three more siblings,
Edward Joseph born 1884
James born 1889 and
John born 1891
The oldest is born at Ashford Terrace whilst the others are Martin's Cottages
I have also found The marriage of Edward Dalton, bachelor of Ball's Bridge and Elizabeth Whelan, Widow of Dundrum, the fathers were Edward Dalton and John Dargon.
Edward died in 1911 in the workhouse and Elizabeth in 1900 in the Royal Dublin Hospital of Pleurisy

This all ties in quite neatly and I'm optomistic that this is the right family. The early death of the mother would explain why William was placed with a family in the country and I assume similar fates of the others though I haven't tracked them down conclusively in the census documents.

I would be interested to find out if Elizabeth had any children with her first husband as I wonder if any of them may have taken in their half siblings.

Thanks for mentioning pensions, it reminded me that my better half's uncle once gave him a pension card of William's. I mooched about in my little bureau and dug it out only to find it was a contributory pension taken out in 1940 not the state old age one. Rats!

I tried to attach a picture of the card here but my iPad won't let me crop the size ( everytime I succeed in shrinking the image I save it and the darn device blows it back up again like some helpfully misguided puppy ).

Chatting with the descendants, there are memories of Elizabeth claiming the only member of her husband William's family she met was a brother in Dublin, my father in law also recalls visiting him.

Is there no way of finding a death cert after 1958 ( ie for 1966) without visiting or contacting the GRO?
