C Murrell & Sons - a Memory of Wimbledon.

Does anyone remember the Murrell family from Hartfield Road Wimbledon? Charles ran a green grocers shop and Coal Merchants in Wimbledon between the wars.

Thanks Alan.

Hello again Allen, I forgot to say who I am... Suzanne Cochrane - nee Pope. I went to Dundonald Nursery-Primary and Junior School. Then on to St Marys C of E School for Girls, Merton, (Surrey).
All our ties with Wimbledon have been severed. My siblings all dispersed, Parents long gone and our friends from Graham Road, now also moved away, just a few years ago. We now live in Berkshire. You may remember The Dilloways, Mrs Lemon, Turners the Chimney Sweep, the Condon boys, the Lady who lived in the pre-fab who kept chickens, The Rushton family, The Brights, The O'Neals, all in Hartfield Crescent. I used to go to the bridge across the main railway line, off Dundonald Rd. to see the steam trains thunder thru. The Flying Scot and The Brighton Belle as I recall. The Broadway was a Saturday haunt, shopping in Le Fevre's which became Kannards. Bellman's the will shop - I had a Saturday job there, I still knit!
Large Woolworths, which had a cafe at the back end, their milkshakes were a treat. The cinemas, Elite and Gaumont. Trinity Road Park. pro;;y best I stop here..

Hello Alan, Born in 1946, I was bought up in Hartfield Crescent, S W 19 and remember the Greengrocer well. I used to play with their son in the street and at Dundonald Rec. They delivered the fruit & veg by horse and cart. Also, closeby to our house was the off licence, not far from the railway crossing.

Hi Alan, Chas Joyce again. Further to my message to you of a few minutes ago, the radio host's name is TONY Murrell, not Alan as I had written. Sorry about that.
