I am now in the process of establishing Samuel and Florence DAYS, then address with the Records Office at Bedfordshire County Council. Apparently Sandy Lane and Cardington Lane were mentioned many years ago as well as the 'Sandy' area. Was there ever ?......a small isolation Hospital (wooden Barrack Type Huts) in and or in the vicinity of Sandy Lane or Sandy. I believe however that the ' Day Family' then residence was in a long gone Isolation Hospital Clearly Marked on a 194O Map, namely situated north of the now A603 Cardingdon Road, Bedford but seen to be , South of the 'New-Cut', 'about south-east' of Barkers Lane, fairly near the then main Railway Line (Bedford to Cambridge) which appears to fit in with my elderly mothers memory on holiday visits to the 'Days residence'. My mother remembers Milk Churns standing near a Railway 'Crossing Pick-up point?', less than ten minutes walk from the Isolation Hospital as described earlier to the 'Milk Churn' Pick Up point'. Recurring Clues as to the location of the Isolation Hospital is it was not too far from a Cricket Club and about 1O minutes walk or so to extended family members who lived in Goldington Road. The Newnham Pool was also mentined as not being 'too far away' on foot.
