Hello, I am wondering if anyone can help me. I am researching my family tree and have discovered that my great grandparents George & Sarah Ann Maria Taylor lived with my great aunts and uncles at 117 Upper Grange Rd in 1901 until about 1908 when they moved to Camberwell. Does this road still exist ? Does anyone know anything about the road or area that they could share with me. Are there any photos that I could get access to. I would be very grateful for any information, no matter how small. Many thanks Lorraine

Is this thread still active ?

I am interested in Upper Grange Road as my grandparents lived there. They married in Thorburn Square in the 1920's.

The excellent Pub History website shows The Conquering Hero at 73 Upper Grange Road see here: https://pubshistory.com/LondonPubs/Bermondsey/ConqueringHero.shtml

The photo from the 1900's may give you an idea how the area looked when your ancestors lived there.

Many thanks for the link. I'm interested to know what the area was like in general around 1910-20.

My great grandfather was President of the Metroploitan Relieving Officers Association in 1911. He was given a very smart certificate of thanks. I'd be happy to donate the certificate if anyone collects this sort of memorabilia.
