Just came across Your Post. From a Barrett's Residential and Trade Directory for Blackpool,1952 Edition. A William Dickson was living at number 15, Kingsmede Avenue, South Shore, Blackpool.

Many Thanks for that.  I did find a Kingsmede address, though it was a different no. so that adds some more info. Thanks again.  Janette

You, mentioning another address, made Me take another look at the Kingmede Addresses, and I found a William T. Dickson living at number 38. So, two William Dixon's in the same Avenue !

Hope this helps Your research.

Terry.

Yes that's them.  I have William's death cert here.  I'll have to look it out to check the no.
