A.   Most houses in Bishop’s Road were not given numbers until, at the earliest, 1939. Until that year we have either house names to go on, or simply the address “Bishop’s Road”; we have not yet managed to identify all of these houses.  You will therefore see below a few instances of “EITHER . . . OR” where it is not yet clear who lived exactly where.  Any extra information will be gratefully received.


B.   Houses with numbers above 85 (and Bishop’s Court), which were built after 1965, are not included here.


C.    Please read the general notes about these street pages .
