  1. Mr D Lazenby says:

    I have a few (7) 35mm slides which my father took in Dec 1961 when he worked at the Esso Petroleum Depot Dorset Wharf Rainville Road. If these are of interest to you I would be pleased to post them if you let me have an address.

  2. Lina Moffitt says:

    I am tracing the ancestry of First Fleet marine James Lee. I have a wad of papers that I want to source. Some say he was related to the James Lee (1715-1795) of the famous Vineyard Nursery, Hammersmith but details on ancestry dot com are scanty on either men. I know your HS had a member wrote a book on the JL of the nursery which is not online. Nevertheless, has anyone done his tree? No one can find out whether the marine died in Australia or returned to the UK nor his family tree.

  3. As part of Open House weekend I gave a talk about the history of Mortlake Crematorium. It was the first time the building had been open to be public for this event and the superintendent, Natasha Bradshaw, asked me to research and present the story behind the crematorium on the Sunday afternoon.
    Opened in 1939, it was the first jointly run municipal crematorium with Richmond, Barnes, Hammersmith and Acton being the authorities comprising the Board.
    Would this fully illustrated presentation be of interest to your members?

      Thankyou. I have forwarded your generous offer to our Chairman who will be in touch.

  4. Hi there, I am trying to find a location of the Shell petrol can factory in Fulham. Its major output was during 1914-18 but was clearly active either side of the war – is there a known address please? Many thanks.

  5. Lesley Scott says:

    I wonder if you can help me as I am researching my husband’s family history. Please can you advise me as to how I may find out about 692 Fulham Road, SW6 in 1956 – 1960? I believe that William and Florence Scott had a confectionery shop there.
    Please contact me on scottie19@btinternet.com. Many thanks.
