Information On Second World War Byfleet

A Memory of Byfleet

My grandmother, Beatrice Lay, lived in Byfleet during the 1940s and up to her death in 1998, only ever moving as far as West Byfleet; my mother, Cynthia Lay, was also born there in 1941.  I believe they lived in Petersham Avenue with the Williams family.

I am researching my family history and would appreciate any information about my family at that time. Also, any information about the Welsh Guards who were posted at West Hall I believe.

I can be contacted at neil.lloyd@blueyonder.co.uk
