With the release of the 1939 Register I have finally traced the position of Emily Lodge, http://www.findmypast.co.uk/1939register, the use of old maps from National Library of Scotland, http://maps.nls.uk, on http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/sidebyside.cfm#zoom=18&lat=51.5863&lon=0.4984&layers=173&right=BingHyb, general maps, which I use Google, on https://maps.google.co.uk, and assistance from both The London Gazette on https://www.thegazette.co.uk , https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/43002/page/4517/data.pdf & British Newspaper Archives on http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk, I use http://www.findmypast.co.uk on http://search.findmypast.co.uk/bna/viewarticle?id=bl%2f0000381%2f19390506%2f032.
“Trying to find out please whether the above subject mentioned name of a house "Emily Lodge" does at all still exist or whether any one at all has any information on where Emily Lodge was or perhaps still stands. A photo of the Emily Lodge, if possible, in its 1938 state, would be great.
The full address, which I have obtained from a 1938 birth certificate, is Emily Lodge, Nevendon Road, Nevendon (in the district of Billericay UD). If I am correct, I read this evening that Timberlog Lane was once formerly Nevendon Road, so what part or where abouts the house Emily Lodge once perhaps stood I don't know although I came across a house by the name of "Emily" in Highlands Avenue, which came off of Bull Road and ran southwards to Highview Road. That comes from a c.1950 map. Bull & Highview both came off Timberlog Lane or the possibly then Nevendon Road. Any help, assistance and information on this address and house name would be great”
Emily Lodge, Nevendon Road (Timberlog Lane) stood, on todays maps, very close to the southwest corner, heading north, of the East Mayne (A132) & Cranes Farm Road (A1235) roundabout, near to what was the then Jolly Cricketers Stores & Nevendon Garage.
Having a very good picture of where it stood I am now wanting to source pictures / photos from the 1939 era of the mentioned area please. Any assistance would be great please.
Kind Regards Tim Bates
