Hi Rena

Unfortunately the info on grace's refers to the company at Dorchester, but doesn't say anything about the Depots around the country

Hi
The company is Eddison Steam Rolling Company of Dorchester, but I'm looking for the address of a depot they had in Leicester between 1935 and 1947

Hi all

Has anybody tried searching for a company rather than a person in the directories on ancestry or FindMyPast?

The Lighter Side / Re: An unexpected find!

Hi

Ive found myself on 2 trees alive and well. For some reason neither had my sister on there. The first tree I found I was speaking to the guy about something else. As the people below grandad was listed as private, I asked who he has listed as it was either dad and me or my uncle and cousin. He went into detail about dad and then about me. Had to laugh at the end because he gave my name and birth date and then said but of course that's you.

Regards

Jon
