Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me identify the second road name on this census?

I've tried looking for a road with a similar name, but cant figure it out!!

The Enumerator went from Millers Place to Taylors Buildings and then on to Sussex Street, so in that area, map below.

What year is the census.
I was born in that area and never heard of it - 1950s onwards.
All I can think of where they may of been are the buildings on the map that are on the left hand side of Cromwell Street which as long as I can remember was a playground with swings etc

Not sure where it was exactly, its gone by the 1911 census, it shows on the 1901, so sometime in between those dates they have been demolished or by 1911 the buildings have been enumerated under the street or road they were in. Best guess, they have been demolished by 1911.

Darn it! - we are both not right on Google Streetmap there is a building there called 'Crescent Chambers'.

Taylor Buildings does ring a modern day bell for me though....

This is the one I was thinking of...

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-to-rent/property-42222356.html

Says Clifton Chambers on the Rightmove site but would make more sense for it to be Crescent Chambers.

Might be Crescent Chambers on Clifton Crescent!

withthat

My head is starting to hurt now. Think I'll go lie down in a darkened room for a bit and burst some bubble-wrap...

Am pretty sure it's Crescent Chambers and, yes, that is Taylors Villas where the Yiamas is.

Derek and bert will be right.
