That's interesting Annie!  A silly question perhaps but do you mean local to Fulham - or local as in England!

Thanks Ray!  That's great!  Does this mean a possibility that the house may still be there?

It would be great to have a photo if it is!  Finding my way there could be interesting, although I've managed to find a few on other trips!  All adds to the fun of the hunt!

 Hi

Thanks be to the miracle that is Zoopla.  ;D Very possibly.

No 14 is on the corner of Burnley (now road) and St Martins
(Green door, young lady walking past)

Thank You Ray and Dawsh!  So good to see a description of the house!  The Street also came up on Google Earth, so got an idea of the appearance! It'll be lovely to take a walk down the street and around the area.

I've thought that I might order the cert and have it posted to my cousin in Wiltshire, where I will be staying for a week!  Get it quicker that way too!  Should be waiting for me when I get there! 

Thanks again

Thank you all so much for your great  help, more than a bit belated with that, and I apologise sincerely for my bad manners!

Just in the process of having another go at finding my missing Robert! And the thread came up in a search.

(I visited the Burnley Road house on my trip and got some really good photos)!

So....Thanks again,
Jeanne 🌺🌺
