"Mrs Brown's Ivy Lodge" Wenlock Road, Shrewsbury
« on: Friday 21 August 09 20:12 BST (UK) »
Have just received a marriage certificate from Southport, the wedding took place at Holy Trinity Church, Shrewsbury in Sept 1898 and the bride, who is a servant, gives her address as "at Mrs Brown's Ivy Lodge" any of you chatters know anything about this establishment?
Many Thanks

I've now been on the Historical Directories site and found an entry in Kellys for the 1890s for a Thomas Brown at Ivy Lodge, Wenlock Road. This sounds like a private house but the marriage certificate made it sound like a teashop or worse still a knocking shop! Can anyone confirm that it is indeed a private house?
