Thank you . I was away from the computer watching " Silk " . I'm from Liverpool but I live near Guildford . Once my Mum passed away I ceased having a reason to go back and that makes me sad . Been away 30 years but still it's my home . Those addresses I gave you are the addresses I am interested in . 12 Kinder Street ( and No. 10 ) . 42 ( and 40 ) Gregson Street and 11 Fitzclarence Street . They were all inhabited by different strands of my family . 12 Kinder Street was my home . I'll send you a map on which I have been working for a long time . But those are the addresses I want to look up .... or ask your friend to look up . The real piece of Gold would be a photo of Kinder Street . I don't have any and years ago when I WAS able to go to the Records Office they had a photo , went for the manila folder ---- and it was empty . Stolen . happened a lot . So i don't have a photo and the houses are long ago gone . Photos of Gregson Street , Radcliffe Street , Kinder Street , Holford Street , Bright Street , Starkie Street and Brunswick Road are what I am searching for and the Gore's occupancy records . It's all the area between the Hippodrome Cinema and SFX church .
Maybe I will get up there for one more visit but it does absolutely kill my soul to look at what has been done to the older areas . at the time some rather wise people said those old properties should be kept , centrally heated and modernised . If they had been heeded we would have some very chic areas of great personality .
If your friend can look up those addresses -- then my many thanks again .
