My Great Grandfather Edwin Coombs - a Memory of Wrecclesham.

My great-grandfather had a pub named the Cricketers Inn in Wrecclesham Street, Wrecclesham, Farnham, Surrey. His name was Edwin Daniel George Coombs. His son Sidney William Coombs was a brewer's assistant on the 1901 Census. Later Sidney joined the Navy and was aboard HMS 'Vanguard' when it blew up on 09/07/1917. He is remembered on the War Memorial at Chatham, Kent. Alas I cannot find any information about the Cricketers Inn, it does not seem to exist any more. Any information would be much appreciated. Has anyone an old photo of the Cricketers Inn? Please. contact me if so, my e-mail address is
Thanking you,
