I have an address on a 1917 death certificate of Sandon Road Nottingham. I am aware that Chelmsford Road changed from a street to a road at some time or other but does anyone know if Sandon Road became Sandon Street - as in Sandon Street off Sherwood Rise at side of Djanogly Academy or has Sandon Road, Nottingham long gone? The death cert. has no mention of Basford.

In Kelly's directory of 1916 it's listed as Sandon Street.

It ran from 49 Nottingham Road to Gawthorne Street.

And is listed as Broxtowe

odd numbers 1 - 57

even numbers 2 - 96

Sandon street is still listed in 1972

And it was Sandon Street in 1891 (Kelly's directory)

so as far as I can see it has been Sandon street since 1891 at least.

I imagine Sandon Street was built sometime in the 1880s(not in Morris directory of 1869)

And can find no record of a Sandon Road up to 1972.

It would be the same one as Sherwood Rise becomes Nottingham Road somewhere near to this point
