Laural Grove, Leeds Electoral Roll Help!
« on: Monday 29 April 19 12:41 BST (UK) »
Hello!

Im wondering if any one can help!

On a 1935 marriage certificate i have Gladys Ward listed as living at 6 Laural Grove in Leeds, Yorkshire and was trying to find out who she lived with as her father had died in 1929 and her mother was in High Royds Hospital.

I have searched the 1939 register to see who lived at that address then but when i searched for them in the 1929 - 1932 electoral roll they were at another address. I have also searched their neighbours but again no one lived at the same address!

Gladys was too young to be on the Electoral Roll (she wasnt 18 until 1934)

So my question is can i search for the address on the electoral rolls rather than the person? or does anyone know of anyone who lived on that street that i can locate then flick through to the correct number?

Thanks in advance!  :)

After flicking endlessly through pages and old maps i have found that Laurel Grove wasn't there in 1929!

Can anyone help me find it in 1930 / 1931 or 1932?

Laurel Grove is shown on the 1921 O.S. map https://maps.nls.uk/view/125642452#zoom=4&lat=10586&lon=1628&layers=BT if this the one you mean. https://goo.gl/maps/BgSo4CWnQeWDgYU3A

Hi Stan!

Im so confused as i spoke to someone who told me the road wasn't called Laurel Grove in 1929 yet i've found documents to say it is?! So im going to ignore what that person told me and start my search again!
