London domestic
« on: Thursday 07 July 22 13:40 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I wonder if you can help.
I have a Mrs Beaton cookbook.
Inside the cover is handwritten Lily Beale,32,Onslow Gardens London W8.
Lily is my wifeís great aunt.
I am assuming she was a domestic at that address.
Does anybody have access to records for that house please.
Not sure of date,but probably 1910-30
Thank you for your help

John William Price, 54, Solicitor.
Wife, son, and four servants, at said address.
Perhaps Lily's next place of employment? Or previous?
