Cronk family

Hi there, my grandmother was an orphan and I am trying to locate my grandmother's mother and it has led me down the path to an Eliza Edwards born 1870 in Bermondsey. In the 1891 census it shows Civil parish Newington St Mary

RD St Saviour Southwark Sub RD St Peter Walworth

George Cronk head

Mary A wife

James son

Thomas son

Eliza Edward age 20 occ ------- assistant born Walworth

Eliza went on to marry James and they lived in Snow's field. They had a baby boy, James Edward John CRONK in 1898 and my question is did they have a baby girl Eliza Elsie(surname EDWARDS) in 1906? and put her up for adoption? Most likely not, but I would appreciate any information if you do have any. It is the only lead I can find re Eliza Edwards and other than letters from the orphanage which was a workhouse. I have nothing. Would really appreciate your response. Thanks

Hello Patricia. I was there between 1962 and 1965. My name was Alison Rock. I remember all of the teachers you mentioned plus a few others. Who could forget Miss Murtaugh? I was terrified of her! My summer straw boater was run over by a train at the Elephant and Castle station when it flew off my head one day. I was really worried that a prefect would spot me not wearing a hat. I can still remember the ghastly shower room and having to stand at the back in Assembly if my train and two busses were late. This posting sounds a little negative but they were happy days. Remember the smell of the factory next door? Alison.

Mon Aug 08

I was there 1961 to 1965

Hello, I was there. I remember all of the teachers you mentioned. I think the Czech teacher was Miss Pompa. There were Mr. Mummery - Chaucer, Miss Smith - RE, Mrs. Molineux - Maths, Miss Percy was lovely and taught Latin, Mrs. Blanchard - Spanish, Miss Griffiths - Music, Miss Thomas - Games (I didn't do it, I used to bunk off), Mrs. Lockie, Geometry.I remember Miss Murtough grabbing hold of me when I was running in the corridor and saying, "Little girls stand back for me, I do not stand back for little girls". Lots of memories. We had "End of the world day " when the Cuba crisis happened. Miss Pompa dived under the desk on her dais saying, "Don't panic girls" when the lunch time hooter of the factory next door went off. Happy days.

Hi Lorraine, I went to Monnow Secondary school and loved the fish and chips at your grandparents shop (will always remember that). I left school in 1965 at age 16. I currently live in Australia but will always be sentimental about Bermondsey UK. By the way my name is Linda Ward and it has never changed, I currently have a partner but have never been married and no kids (neither of us!). I will be in UK/Europe September next year and will definitely check out the changes to Bermondsey, I think the building I lived in (9/10 The Grange Bermondsey) may have been demolished. I checked the real estate and don't recognise the building. Anyway, great to hear about Bermondsey. Cheers Linda

Tunnel Sports Football Club

I am currently researching the Tunnel Sports Football Club, later known as Tunnel F.C. then known as Dartford Amateurs and later Dartford Glentworth in the 1970's. The Club were formed just after the 2nd world war in and around the Bermondsery and Rotherhithe areas.

I am interested in all aspects and times of this club but in particular, the mid 1960's when they located out to Sidcup and then in 1966 to Dartford Football Club for the 1966-67 and 1967-68 seasons. If anyone has any information or mementos of this club at this time please get in touch. I am in touch with 3 of their mid-1960's players so far but would like to hear from more please. Thanks all. You can either post to My Bermondsey or directly to me at
