The 1926 & 1927 directory of Croydon has 427 London Road, Croydon listed as Restholme Nursing Home (Mrs. A.C. Johnson - C.M.B.).

By the 1928 directory the re-numbering had taken place and 427 had become 1001 London Road.

You can see 1001 (previously 427) on this overlay map from the mid 1950's.

I think this end of London Road may come under Thornton Heath as well.

Looks like the house is still there too. https://goo.gl/maps/LRd6p3SfNnB2

Thank you very much for the reply Mark.
I had wondered if it could have been a Nursing Home as I couldn't see why else the baby wasn't born at home as was usual in those days.

You've saved me lots of research - thank you very much.

Thank you also to everyone else who gave me information on this post - it all helps build up the picture. It's amazing what chaos can be caused by re-numbering!!

Thank you everyone - much appreciated

Judy

PS Just looked at the overlay maps - that's a good webs site.
Also the house itself doesn't seem big enough for a Nursing Home - maybe it goes further back that we think.

I think that your question has now been very nicely sorted out :)

Also the house itself doesn't seem big enough for a Nursing Home - maybe it goes further back that we think.

Perhaps it was just a rather grandiose title for a very small establishment?
