Is anyone aware of where Fern Villa might have stood along Woodchurch Road? Someone on a genealogy forum is looking for information about it.

Note: East Bank is the little road/path opposite Woodchurch Road School.

Interesting. I know the school as my son goes there, and I know the little lane.

According to OxtonHill its on the 1911 census as 95 Woodchurch Road, but that would be the other side of the road to East Bank.

95 Woodchurch Road IS the funeral parlour, I vaguelly remember that being built (as T A Ball funeral directors), but I can't remember what was there before hand, maps show there were a couple of buildings on that land but no names.

dd. I went to Woody Road 1950-55 (?). I remember that it (Funeral Director's) was bomb damaged, then rebuilt. Presume it got blatted in the same raid as the one that demolished the RH wing of the school. Heard stories of people being killed in the adjacent air raid shelters in the same raid.

There's quite a few pictures of the bomb damage to the school's air raid shelter and the school itself, I will have to check them out.

I think the caretakers house survived without damage.

According to the 1911 Enumerators book list, the numbers run as follows:
87,89,91,93 Woodchurch Road, Shops.
95 (Fern Villa) Private House.
97 Private House
99 Woodchurch Road School.
101 Woodchurch Road, Private House.

From the actual image, 95 seems to be split into two dwellings, one family having 5 rooms & one having 2 rooms, only the 1 having two rooms describes itself as being Fern Villa, the other just 95 Woodchurch Road.

So did I. Then we all were shipped out to Prenton Primary in Northwood Road while Woody Road's bomb damage was repaired. We would get off the bus at Swan Hill and walk the length of Northwood Road. It seemed like miles. Can you imagine that these days when all the little dears get transported by car to around the corner.
