My maternal grandfather was Christopher Crawley. They were bombed out of the Nags Head, in Mile End either late 1943 or very early 1944. I think that they were there for most of the war. My grandparents moved in with us in Barking for a short time after the bombing and then became the tenants at the Duke of York in Barking. Sadly my grandfather died shortly afterwards from pneumonia. My grandmother, Mary aka Polly, moved from the Duke of York in the fifties to the Halfway House at Leytonstone and retired from there late 50s / early 60s. ***
