Alder Way, Carshalton

Can anyone identify this road on an old map? It was there in 1949, that's all I know.

Can't find any mention of it. There is an Aultone Way - might that be it?

It's written very clearly as Alder Way, Carshalton on a birth certificate.

Nothing coming up on an address search on the 1939 register or on the 1911 census.

I can't see any mention in online newspapers either. 

I do wonder if Shauns suggestion is right,  when the person registering the birth gave their address as Aultone it was heard as Alder  :-\

It may have been one of the roads off Culver Avenue which is off Green Wrythe Lane. 

A quote from Helier Memories says " I used to live in the prefabs at the bottom of Culvers Avenue in Birch Crescent."  one of the roads mentioned by KGarrad. All the roads there were named after trees.

I can see those 'tree' streets on both old and new maps, but not Alder Way. I have just asked someone who said they were prefabs, so they might not be on the map.
