A Memory of Battersea

hello Ray,Thanks for the reply,I remember your name.my surname was Avis and Fred Avis was my dad and Maggie Robinson was my mum I have two younger sisters. The Bennetts did live next door to us their names are Bernard,Colin and Christine they moved to a maisonette above us in Dorset rd. I went to John Milton school and when we moved to Wyvil school in South Lambeth rd.I wonder if you remember my cousins John and Roy Goodson and Freddie Cordingley they lived in Woodgate st. We are also related to the Wicks, Fairbrass and Hopson families. I will speak to some of my aunts to help me with some more memories.look forward to hearing from you.. Best Wishes Christine
