    Anyone going to Dorset Record Office?

    I know my grandfather Alexander Bristow (Alec for short) had a cottage in a little village called Hermitage (near Cerne Abbas) in the first half of the 1930's. But I don't know the name of the cottage. I was wondering whether anybody on here might be going to Dorset History Centre and could have a look at the electoral roll for Hermitage for those years to see what address he was living at (and if anybody else was living there with him!), please?

      Kite, once upon a time my OH would have been able to help you, but he hasn't been to Dorchester for ages.

      I was wondering.....it might be worth you contacting Sherborne Library.

      They might well point you in the direction of the Electoral Rolls or whatever. Hermitage is/was pretty small (pop 100 in 1901 and 101 in 2001! lol) so I can't think it would take them more than a couple of minutes!

        Thanks for that, Merry, I'll give it a go on Monday.
