As you know the address then whoever was registered to vote there should be listed on the Electoral Roll.

Access unlikely online but a copy will almost certainly be available to view at the library or archive office nearest to the address.

Thank you

Too far
I was hoping Arthur might have been living with her or one of her children
all I know is she was a widow, so her husband Robert must have died between 1913 when Arthur was born and 1964??

I have got the birth and death of Arthur
