Information on Second World War 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
