Kev,     


Barnet to Ricky is not THAT far, however, (modern) Well End & Ridge are almost on top of Barnet

I was googling ;D
The Well End Activity Centre came up - it's a Scout Centre.
And I was sitting next to son-in-law - who is a Scout Leader! Coincidence, or what!

OTOH, you're the expert on Hertfordshire ;D ;D

Thank you for thinking about this for Me,

I have a relative who committed suicide  on  21st March 1936,  her husband said she did it because she thought she was ill. ( gassed at home )

 but 10 days later a very close gentleman friend of hers died at the above

place , I just feel something was not right, but wondered if perhaps there had been a hospital, hospice or place that someone would go to if ill.   He did not live out that way, his home was Teddington , Middlesex.

Eilleen,     


Are we talking "Windyridge" or "Windy Ridge"     
Was it a road accident/house/FARM?     


Is there a newspaper article you can quote?     
What do you really want to know?

Hi

"Shenley" variously a hospital for "conditions" ( inc mental ) isn't far away.
