Hi Irish Italian,  There are Divito's still in Crossgates in Fife today and have been there for 100 years, they used to be Di Vito but the name merged into one at some point.  Linlithgow is not that far from Fife so you may have a connection with them. 

The Divito family came from Montatico in Fossinone  between Rome and Naples.
1910 Giuseppe Divito and his wife Rosa Borza came to Crossgates .  They married in Italy aged 17.
1940 Giuseppe now 66 was interrred in WW2 and put on the “Andora Star” which was sunk by a german sub on the 3rd of July 1940 and he was one of 446 Italians to lose their lives.

Cheers Evelyn

Just found out my Grand uncle was born in Greenwich.  The family is from Scotland but his father was working in England.  I was wondering if anyone could suggest where I might find a picture circa 1891 of 7 Nelson Building, Bridge Street, Greenwich. Thanks Evelina

Thanks Ken.  His wife had re-married by 1923 if that is a date in the ref no. so probably returned them as she was starting a new life and they had no children to pass them on to. Cheers Evelina
