My maternal grandfather Ernest Cording was the private secretary to Mr Brandt at their London Offices before WWII and was moved to live at Hill Cottage or The Dower House on Castle Hill in late 1939 when key employees were "evacuated" to Bletchingley. Hill Cottage was often used as accommodation for visiting staff. The family, including me remained in residence after the death of my Grandfather in 1946 until May 1950 when we moved to Reigate.
