Bakery, Frederick Smith - Dover 1911
« on: Monday 16 April 18 12:31 BST (UK) »
I have a : Frederick Edward Smith 1881-1948 of 36 Longfield Road in Dover. Along with his wife, Catherine and assistant baker Frederick George Cosham they ran a bakery. In 1911 Frederick Smith was listed as baker/pastrycook.

Looking for a picture of the shop and/or a picture of Frederick George Cosham.  He enlisted at Dover into the 16th Lancashire Fusiliers.

Grateful for help or assistance.

Thank you

Hi Mike,

Do you know the name of the Bakery by any chance?

Hello Shaun:

No the name wasn't mentioned, just that they lived over-the-shop.  The shop is still there at present as Sheila's Corner Shop.

How much information do you have on Frederick George Cosham?

I have found his Regiment number when he was in the fusiliers if you don't know it. Might help you going forward with more information.

I have his number and a great deal of info but I badly need to try and locate a photograph.

Thank you
