From another source " Paradise Row was renamed Queen's Row West in the 1860s and is now known as Royal Hospital Road."

Paradise row; or, A broken piece of old Chelsea, being the curious and diverting annals of a famous village street newly destroyed, together with particulars of sundry noble and notable persons who in former times dwelt there; to which are added likenesses of the principal of them and of their several houses
by Blunt, Reginald, 1857-1944
