Wray Park Garages, London Road, Reigate. Unknown date.

Comment 1

Clive White from Redhill posted this comment on Friday 20 October 2017 18:52:40.

I did my Motor Vehicle apprenticeship at Wadham-Stringer in the late 60s-mid 70s and wish to research the history of the garage and its predecessor, Wray Park Garages. If anyone has any information or pictures of Wray Park Garages or Wadham-Stringer, I would love to hear from you.

Hi Clive. This is an unbelievable coincidence! You may remember me as I introduced you to your wife!I have also been looking at the history of Wray Park garages. There was a post card sold on a well known auction website not long ago of the garage in the 1940/50's. I hope the Mods allow links to be included? Best regards, your fellow apprentice, Jon Powell.

Clarence Walk, Meadvale. 1910. Grady's Photo Series.

Comment 1

Keith Lawless from REDHILL posted this comment on Wednesday 17 January 2018 09:09:51.

Happily the road is now tarmac! No parking restrictions now (no cars then). We live at no2 - the first on the left. The railings have gone, the porch roof remains. All in all, the view is remarkably similar, although houses were built on both sides beyond Meadvale Garage on the right. A new lamp post replaces the gas(?) example and now sits in front of the corner brick post - less chances of it being hit!

Comment 1

Tim Barker from London posted this comment on Thursday 16 March 2017 17:01:00.

Going through a family tree. My great-great-great uncle was Robert Cobbold Perry who died 21/8/1864 at Merstham House, Surbiton, Surry. His mother-in-law (my great-great-great grandmother was Anne Courtnall Edwards, married to Thomas Lincoln Barker, both of Ipswich, Norfolk.

From my window I can see the tomb of your gt gt gt grandparents, Thomas Lincolne Barker and Anne Courtnall Edwards. Please mail me if you would like a photo.


Comment 3

Tim Barker from London posted this comment on Wednesday 12 April 2017 19:05:00.

To Jocelyn of Ipswich, I am simply astonished that someone in sight of my ancestors tomb in Ipswich is looking at a website about a house in Reigate. Yes I would LOVE a photo of my g-g-g-grandparents tomb (I assume it is still in St Margarets). I have some info about the tomb occupants if you have any interest. My email address if the forum bosses will allow, is tim (at) barker (dot) org (dot) uk.

Dear Christine I am researching a tenuous link to the Edwards family tree in Reigate and wonder if you would be kind enough to email me so I may ask a couple of questions regarding Tom Edwards ? Many thanks - Zoe

I think my Grandfather and Father are in this photo.So would love a copy of it.I was born at 105 Cromwell Road.Certainly F.G.Lawrence & Sons was also born there and we both still exist!

Barbara Pennell from Truro posted this comment on Thursday 21 February 2013 22:29:00.

Hello Irene. I knew you when I was at Cromwell Road school. I was Barbara Whiting then. I was looking at photos of Meadvale, where I was born, then, browsing through all the very local places, came upon this wonderful picture. I do hope you got a copy from someone.


Comment 3

Keith Fuller from Harrogate,Nth.Yorks. posted this comment on Wednesday 16 July 2014 21:38:00.

The two ladies in the first two comments went to Cromwell Road School and I wondered if the date could possibly match the time I was in the Church Lad's Brigade (St.Mathews Church)and had quite a bit of contact with some of the pupils from the school. This was in the 1947 to 1951 period after which I left school and had to move with my parents back to Sussex. Most names escape me now, but Bob Robinson(and his girlfriend) from a Cromwell Road address,Alan Durrent, and another girl who helped, with her mother at Church Lad's events - Edna Bushnell, from Brook Street(?). I lived in Salfords (Woodside Way) from 1942 until 1951.

I'd love to hear anything about any of them - so many years have passed!!

I have put a group photograph of the C.L.B. Band from c.1947 on the St.Mathews Church part of the web, and welcome any contact.

Regards,

Keith Fuller.

I went to Cromwell Rd primary school in the early 60's. Just visiting UK now and went looking for my old address 21 Station Rd Redhill and of course the school. When did it close? Can anyone fill me in on a bit of history over the past 50 yrs in the area?


Comment 5

Peter Miles from Horsham, West Sussex posted this comment on Saturday 23 December 2017 16:33:58.

I am too interested in past history of this school as I went there from 1957-1964. I have fond memories of the place. It was at first difficult to track-down, as forgot the road it was on, so long ago. Then discovered it was the "Longmead Adult Education Centre". It appears to be sold now (October 2017) to developers? Sad if they knock this very old Victorian School down, has amazing architecture. No doudt the devlopers will vandelise it by knocking it down, seems all boarded-up right now. We had a cake shop right next to the school, selling what they called, Penny Nelson's, what we know as bread pudding ..... hee hee Whatever happened to my old mate Stephen Fenner .... so long ago now mate !! PS. I was also in the Church Lads Brigade in the mid 1960's from what I recall.

this shop belonged to Joseph Chandler who was an ancestor of mine - my cousin 4x removed. Estimated date of the photo was around 1850-1860. Joseph was born in 1822 but I haven't yet established when he died.

my grandfather lived at the house directly behind the lamp post on the right, he probably moved in in the early 20's and moved out in the mid 80's ! I have great memories of this house even though it was bitterly cold during the winter !!
