    As far as I know, the daughter also came to Wallingford but I don't know when!

    Agnes and Cicley died in Leicestershire, I have no other info. I will look at Vera's suggestion but think I will be telling my friend to tell her friend that their address in Wallingford can't be found!

    Thanks all

    if you can get her name, I can have a look, I wonder what the connection was to Wallingford, as they all seem to be in Ealing before and after the war, but did change addresses.

    Vera,
    I'm told that at some point the daughter also came to Wallingford - not sure if it was during or after the war before they went back to Ealing?
    ​Victoria/Agnes was the Wallis' housekeeper and came with them to Wallingford during the war.
    Thanks

    Carolyn,

    It's the address in Wallingford where Victoria (Agnes) and her daughter would have been before going back to Ealing I'm trying to find.

    As far as I'm aware the daughter is no longer alive but until I confirm I won't post her name.

    Thanks for taking a look!!

    I assume you are trying to find the daughters address, is she still alive?

    NB the word is coat and costume manufacturer

    So Alan D Wallis on the 1939 is with his Mildred in Ealing. He is a ladies coat and costing?? manufacturer.
    The housekeeper moved with them to Wallingford, Berkshire (now Oxfordshire) during the blitz. Her name was Victoria Agnes (or vice versa) Clegg. She had a daughter, who by 1939 had been evacuated to Kettering - Victoria/Agnes is the lady my friend is trying to find an old address for in Wallingford so thought trying to find the Wallis' would be the link!

    Thanks

    Hmm, that was my worry! Thanks

    I found the coat manufacturer in some sort of London directory in 1940 but can't see anything obvious after this especially not in Berkshire where they apparently moved to duing the blitz!

    started a topic Electoral registers

    Electoral registers

    Hello,

    Are there any electoral registers / directories for the war period for Berkshire online anywhere - not something I would normally look at but trying to find an address for someone's grandmother who was a housekeeper for a coat manufacturer that moved from Ealing to Berkshire during the blitz. Her grandaughter is visiting the town and wanted to know if she could find the address!

    Thanks all
Working...
