Search for Long Eaton Home on 1939 Register
« on: Tuesday 27 December 16 13:46 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

A relative has asked me to help them look up their home on the 1939 Register. We know the home was built in the 1920's and so we assumed a search would yield a result. Unfortunately, the houses on the road at that time appear to have names not numbers i.e. 'Moordale'. We have no idea what name the house had, and nor do any of the neighbours! :( There are no bricks or plaques which state the name unlike many other homes in the area.

My question is, do we need to look at a map of Derbyshire to find this or is there another resource we could use? If anyone is able to help the road is Longmoor Road in Long Eaton and we are looking for number 76.

Thanks in advance for any help!

The picture is of no 76 Longmoor Road from Street View., which should help you to find it - no name.

It is just past Grasmere Road going towards Curzon Street.

You can also see it here (you may need to zoom out to see the number) - https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/447562/334954/13/100765

Hi David,

She lives there now and we have looked at old maps but it doesn't state the 'name' of the house. We did a quick look up on the 1939 Register and all of the houses on the road (including 76) are not listed by house numbers.

We're very interested in who may have lived there as we'd love to learn the story of the home!

Many thanks for your help!

How about walking down the road to see if any houses have numbers and names.

Make a note of what you find and look at the 1939 register to see if you can work out which name is 76.
Cross Steeple Claydon Bucks,  Jennings Steeple Claydon Bucks,  Steel Byfield Northants,  Rogers Northants,  Wheeler Oxon,  Roberts Oxon,  Bonham Oxon/ Middleton Cheney Northants,  Maycock Northants,  Abbott Northants , Newman Northants, Buckingham Bucks, Hart Warks, Newth Gloucs.

Hi jaywit,

We've done this lots of times and unfortunately the houses don't have any names on them.

Thank you for your help :)
