  1. Chiddicks Family Tree

    Hi, I have an ancestor John William Longland who was a Butcher and it looks like in 1911 he owned a Butchers shop, 6 Tramway Terrace, Carshalton Rd, Mitcham. I am just wondering where you obtained the 1915 information from? I am currently researching my family tree, hence the enquiry. Thanks Paul Chiddicks
