red mail Coldershaw Road West Ealing
Could anyone advise me how I can find the number of the house my grandmother was living in in Coldershaw road in 1939? The 1931 census was destroyed in the last war and the 1941 census was not taken because of the war. I have no family members left to ask and am out of ideas. Many thanks
Beacon House School Acton and Ealing
Does anyone else remember Beacon House School? It was a small private school on Gunnersbury Avenue and had moved there in about 1950 from a large corner house in Twyford Avenue in Acton. I didn't attend the school after it moved to Ealing but was one of the first group of 4 year olds who formed the first ever class. There were probably about 8 of us and I have very happy memories of the year or maybe 2 that I spent there from about 1947 or 8. Mrs Henderson was the owner and head and her son Malcolm was one of my classmates. Dopes anyone have any photographs from this little school in Twyford Avenue?
The Haunted House
When I was growing up in South Ealing in the 1950's there was an old house at the corner of St Mary's Road and Cairn Avenue, opposite what was then Ealing Tech. It was known as the Haunted House and was empty and in a semi- derelict condition. It was demolished in the mid/late 1950's I think. What I want to know is what was the story which led to it getting that name? Does anyone know please?
Did you live in Meadvale Road in the 1950's?
The address I am interested in is 192 Meadvale Road. It is listed now as a family run B&B but what was it in 1955? Was it a B&B then, or was it bed-sit's or a family home or something else, even a nursing home? It was given as the home address of my 82 year old great aunt when she died in West Middlesex Hospital the same year. I was 11 at the time and I don't remember her living there only visiting her in what were known as 'rooms' in a house in Kenton. My family, including her sister, lived in South Ealing at the time so possibly she moved closer to them shortly before her death. Does this address mean anything to anyone please?

I'm looking for any information on Henry Dyer. Date/place of birth unknown. He was deceased by May 1885. It is thought he had twin sons, Henry and Thomas, born about 1863 in Woking, Surrey.

James Lewis - Metropolitan policeman
James Lewis was born in Eastnor in 1863. He was in service in Westminster before joining the police force in the 1880s. (2 of his brothers were also policemen in London.)

James married Emma Eliza Beecheno or Beechens in 1888 - her sister married one of James's brothers.

red mail Phillips, Aitken
I am trying to find out what happend to my great Grandmother Emily Mary Phillips.She married my Great Grandfather John Aitken at Ealing Congregational Church in 1906. She had my Grandfather John Aitken and then another Baby, George who died of TB in May 1911. Emily is not shown on the 1911 Census but my Grandfather was living with an uncle and the baby was in the family home with his father and Emily's mother also Emily Phillips.The baby died 1 month later. My G. Grandmother was born in Ealing in about 1880 and had three older brothers , George, Charles and Samuel Phillips. I suspect thet Emily also died of TB about 1911. The story always was she died in Childbirth but I have found she lived at least 18 months longer as my G. Grandfathers status on the census is " Married" not "Widowed". Does anyone know how to get hold of hospital records or does anyone know of the families of her brothers? Charles Phillips was a carpenter and Samuel was a motor mechanic on The Mall in 1911.

red mail Isaac White and Mary Holtzymer c1792
My 4 x great grandmother Lucy White was baptised in St Mary Ealing in September 1796. Her parents were Issac and Mary White. I have found the marriage for this couple, also at St Mary Ealing in May 1792. Mary was listed as a widow, Mary HOLTZYMER. This is almost certainly an English curates attempt at HOLZEIMER or HOLZHEIMER. I can't find any other mention of the surname (or obvious variants) on the IGI, Pallots etc, and I'm a bit stumped as to where to start looking for the marriage of Herr Holtzymer and Mary. What I'm trying to work out of course is whether Mary was German herself. If anyone has seen the surname Holtzymer/Holzeimer/Holzheimer anywhere in the 1790's, could they give me a clue please?!
