timfoster 0 Posted December 3, 2020 Report Share Posted December 3, 2020 I wonder if anyone can help me. I am looking for some detail regarding my 2x great uncle, Walter Knight. His brother, John, was my grandmother's father. From what I have discovered to date, he was a hairdresser living in Forest Fields when he died in 1961. His address given on the cremation register was 189 Berridge Road in Forest Fields. Googling I can see that this is still a hairdressers today, and from the photos online it looks to be a converted corner terraced house. He was 80 when he died so I'm assuming that he was no longer cutting hair, but the 1939 register shows this as his address (his employment is listed as gents hairdresser) so I think it's a fair guess that he was a hairdresser at that address too. The 1939 register shows him as married to Edith with a 20 year old daughter, Audrey. If anyone remembers Walter (I remember my father referring to Uncle Wal or Uncle Lol) or has any details of his hairdressing business (if you have any photos, that would be amazing), I'd really appreciate finding out more Quote Link to post Share on other sites
