The History of Romford in the Essex, East of London.

The Romford war Memorial exists in the Main Road, Romford, near to the Town Hall. It appears to have been updated in 1996 to list all civilians and members of H M Forces whom perished in the second world war, these are engraved around the base of the monument. The placard at the base states :

"The panels recording the names of the Townspeople of Romford who gave their lives in the Second World War were added to this War Memorial on 10 November, 1996. These names are also recorded on panels at Romford War Memorial Old Folks' Club, 21a Eastern Road, Romford."

These can be seen here : Front Base Panel , Right Base Panel , Left Base Panel

The original transcriptions of those whom perished in the first world war are engraved on the faces of the obelisk structure. There are three other faces of the monument that can be seen here : Reverse face , Left face , Right face

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with 1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
