Hi my Granny and Grandfather lived at number 1 New Close. Neddy and Violet Marney. My Grannys' father was Joe Ayres and the other side of my family were the Dightons, some of them are still there. I ca think of a place where I felt safer but I know a lot of outsiders were warned not to go there and a lot of people were scared of going there. Amazing people, amazing times there when I was younger. can remember a portacabin which was a sweetshop, run by two old ladies (I think one was called Dolly) I remember everyone there so fondly and although I live in Devon now whenever I go up to London I try to go to New Close. When I was younger it seemed as though I was related to almost everyone in New Close, one way or another! (Perhaps I was!) Would love to hear from anyone who remembers my grandparents. Take care everyone, Debs xxx.

I am researching the name of Dighton/Diton/etc for a friend.

He is descended from Solomon and Patience Dighton from Croydon, Mitcham Common and other places.

Any link appreciated.

Thanks

Hi just wondering if anyone here remembers my Nan Ethel Wood, she used to live with Albie Smith in the flat above the corner shop, last time I went there was for Albies funeral years ago.  Also whoever mentioned a Nelson...was that Nelson Smith as he was my Nanny Phoebe"s brother and they came from Mitcham.  I now live in Australia so all information would be great....thanks
