Resident of Dunstable ?

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Lizzylou Report 7 May 2013 15:26

If you are a resident of Dunstable perhaps you can help me.
I have my Gt.Grandmother's death certificate which gives her address (where she died in 1948), as 205 Chiltern Crescent, Dunstable.
I haven't been able to find this address on any maps and someone at the Bedfordshire Archives (who was answering another query on the same lady) looked in local gazetteers up to c1953 & couldn't spot a Chiltern Crescent.
Do you know of a road name similar that may have been miss transcribed?
Or is there really a Chiltern Crescent ?
The certificate was obtained from the GRO and is typed.
I will be pleased for any help.

Is it actually typed as 205 Chiltern Crescent, Dunstable or does it just say 205 Chiltern Crescent. with no town afterwards


GlitterBaby Report 7 May 2013 15:36

Strange as it comes up on as 205 Chiltern Crescent, Chiltern Road. LU6 1EU


GlitterBaby Report 7 May 2013 15:41

Even stranger that post codes comes up on streetmap as Benning Av

The address is typed as; 205 Chiltern Crescent, Dunstable.
The Luton post code looked promising until I saw your next message !
Thanks for taking the time looking it up.
In an ideal world, someone on this site would be living just around the corner :-)

Gives LU6 1EU as Chiltern Crescent, Chiltern Road, Dunstable - odd numbered properties 189-211 of Chiltern Road

A map from AA route planner shows Chiltern Crescent alongside Chiltern Road and probably backing on to Benning Avenue

So Chiltern Crescent does exist ! Thank you so much Stuart & Glitterbaby.
That's another piece of the puzzle that makes up this lady.
gold star for you both!!
