A local history group like that is well worth contacting.

My gr-grandfather ran a pub in an Oxfordshire village in the early 1900's. The local history group couldn't tell me anything about him, but did send me several old photos of the pub, from around the time he would have been there. The building was demolished in the 1960's

Is there a Post Office or Pub near the shop?

Wanting a photograph of my grandparents' cottage in Wales,which I used to visit, but knew had been demolished, I contacted the nearby pub and they agreed to display a postcard asking for information.
This was seen by an old villager, who contacted someone who could help and I now have a lovely photograph.

Maybe a shop or pub could help you in the same way...?

Hi
Just a quick message to say my Auntie and her husband seemed to live at Sycamore Crescent, Wath upon Dearne.
It looks like council, but i may be wrong.
Edger died at the house.
Many thanks
Sally :-)

A BIG THANK YOU TO ELAINE,
How kind of you to take the trouble, will probably find it wasn't a sweet shop at all :-(
To be honest Elaine, i have been looking for about 5 years or more, so a bit longer won't push me over the top !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am in the process of selling my house - well it is on the market, and at the moment i can't find my certs, i am always better when i am messy :-D

THANKS TO KAY, i will have a better look tomorrow for the death cert for Joyce, but am sure it said the hospital in the home address. :-S

Best Regards

Sally :-)
