Apart from Huberd House in Manciple Street, does anybody know if any of the other blocks were damaged/destroyed by bombing in WW2?

The school was opposite the end of Huberd House where my grandmother lived.

The left had end of Huberd house was destroyed by bombing and rebuilt after the war My grandmother lived there when it was bombed (no12) and was moved to Love Lane Morden, but moved back after the war when that end was rebuilt. If you look at the flats, the left hand end is newer.

I did and now I know it's quite visible.
I've lived on the block since 97 and never was aware of it. Thank you!

When my grandmother moved back that end was brand new. It must have been a mansion after where they lived at the time of the 1911 census where my grandparents and her mother and two children,one of them my mother, and my great grandmother lived in St Stephen's Square in one room, and that included the kitchen. Later on there were two more children. Granddad was killed in WW1
