Bushey Hill Road, Camberwell by Maggie Hall (Member 10162889) on 14-Jun-2016
Hi. My single name was Margaret Finch. I lived at 94 Bushey Hill Road until 1961 when we moved to 67B Glengarry Road in East Dulwich. I went to Lyndhurst Grove Primary School from 1952 to 1958 and Peckham Girls' School from 1958 to 1965. I would love to hear from any old friends, school mates, teachers, etc and know how everyone is getting on and what life has held for you during all these years.

    I was a teacher at Peckham Girls School at almost the same time as you were a pupil, as a teacher of French mostly. I was in NR54. I'm still in touch with Miss Parrott, now Mrs Hughes, though Mrs Partington, also a history teacher died some time ago. My immediate friends from that time are all in our 80's!

H S Whiteside's and the Sun-Pat Factory, Parkhouse Street, SE5 by Sue (Member 10301802) on 8-Oct-2015
My father worked at the Sun-Pat factory for the 1930s until it closed in the 19603. I shall be grateful if any one has information about when the factory was bombed in WW2 (my dad was burnt rescuing some girls from the hot oil room). I think the date may have been 18th October 1940 but I am trying to varify this date. My dad's name was ALBERT CONROY   
  • Re: H S Whiteside's and the Sun-Pat Factory, Parkhouse Street, SE5 by Debra (Member 10302277) on 22-Dec-2015
    Hi Sue
    I believe the factory was bombed on 15 Oct 1940 - that's what it says on Wikipedia and this is also the date I was told by a member of Genes Reunited. My aunt was one of the girls working in the factory - she was 14 and was badly burnt and had her leg amputated. Next year she will be 90!

    Best
    Debra

    Hullo. I just noticed this posting from some years ago. I cannot resist mentioning that I remember playing in the street and knowing the Perrys and others in that remote time. It would be nice to be in touch with anyone else who remembers me, unless, of course, you would rather forget the irritating little John Harding!

    Hi Leslie, my name is Patrick Halls, I lived in 65 Mosedale Street and I remember you. I use to play with you and your sister Lorna. Last time I saw Lorna, she told me you were living the other side of Peckham Rye, how are you both? Do you still live there?

Ancestral Home in Camberwell by Johan Venter (Member 10266037) on 5-Oct-2011
I am doing some research on my family history. My 2nd great-grandfather was born in Camberwell. His parents were Thomas Charles Dorey and Eliza Trichet.
Their address in 1851 was 6, Grove Place, St Giles, Camberwell. In 1881 their address was 45, The Grove, Camberwell.
I read somewhere that "...Camberwell Grove has not changed much since the 19th century...". But that was written in the 1970's, ... more >>
