    The History of Romford in Essex, East of London.

    My family arrived in Romford in the 1890's and stayed! In fact, all my family links are tied into Romford, so I thought a little time spent on the area, probably worthwhile. We moved all the way to Hornchurch in the early 1970's.

    A plethora of information can be gleaned from these pages; try the search engine at the bottom of each page, too, it all helps. A few personal recollections of Romford to follow. Plus a few Trade Directories to introduce the area! Plus, an insight to the working of Sainsbury & local politics.
