Comment number 12. My apologies to Hetherset, I was confusing it with Quarry HiLL house and Lodge.





David Nicholas Ranson, Fort Myers, Florida on 12/04/2017 at 20:03 regarding Hillside School, Reigate Hill, Reigate

This was not a schoolroom in my time (1947-51) but always an assembly hall and a gym. The Trellis in the foreground dates the photo before 1947 certainly, because it wasnt there in 1947!





Tim Barker, London on 12/04/2017 at 19:05 regarding Merstham House, Merstham, by Tom Edwards, circa 1908

To Jocelyn of Ipswich, I am simply astonished that someone in sight of my ancestors tomb in Ipswich is looking at a website about a house in Reigate. Yes I would LOVE a photo of my g-g-g-grandparents tomb (I assume it is still in St Margarets). I have some info about the tomb occupants if you have any interest. My email address if the forum bosses will allow, is tim (at) barker (dot) org (dot) uk.





Jocelyn , Ipswich on 11/04/2017 at 19:55 regarding Merstham House, Merstham, by Tom Edwards, circa 1908

From my window I can see the tomb of your gt gt gt grandparents, Thomas Lincolne Barker and Anne Courtnall Edwards. Please mail me if you would like a photo.





Anthony Twyman, Clacton on 11/04/2017 at 13:26 regarding Hethersett Close, Reigate

My parents were friends with Hellen and Jasper Otley who lived in the gatehouse in the mid-50s. I remember seeing the main house in a sorry state having been damaged during WWII with the upper floors and the contents of the rooms (beds/wardrobes etc) in clear view. I was about 8 years old at the time.





Nick Perry, Sutton on 30/03/2017 at 09:49 regarding Nutfield Road, Redhill

I wondered how a landfill site got such a grand name!!!





M. Hennessy, Reigate on 03/04/2017 at 18:08 regarding Ringley Park Avenue, Reigate

Does anyone have information on the history of Ringley Park House, 59 Reigate Road?





J. D. Krainock, Redding, CA on 03/04/2017 at 08:06 regarding Hillside School, Reigate Hill, Reigate

I attended from Dec. 54 to May, 55. Mr. B was Headmaster. I cannot remember which house I was in (Lions, Dragons, Unicorns) Remember Matron? A very good time, long ago. I cannot locate the school on Google earth. JDK





Michael Minnion, Hallbankgate Brampton Cumbria on 02/04/2017 at 23:17 regarding Stubbs Lane, Lower Kingswood

Hallo Lynda.
I believe that the wooden structure you are talking about wasc a cafe called The Beeches. It was near Roods shop and I think next to Elliot Right Way Books. PS When you lived on Brighton Road did you live in a house called Up Yonder? If so I delivered your papers. Did your father/stepfather work at Turners? My youngest son went to UEA at Norwich. Small World.......





Helen Child, Redhill on 16/03/2017 at 15:25 regarding Monotype Works, Salfords, Redhill

Hiya

I work on Perrywood Business Park. We think we are the very last unit facing the field. Could you advise if some of the houses were knocked down on the left hand side as you come into the Park.. we are having a debate in the office about this!





Tim Barker, London on 16/03/2017 at 17:01 regarding Merstham House, Merstham, by Tom Edwards, circa 1908

Going through a family tree. My great-great-great uncle was Robert Cobbold Perry who died 21/8/1864 at Merstham House, Surbiton, Surry. His mother-in-law (my great-great-great grandmother was Anne Courtnall Edwards, married to Thomas Lincoln Barker, both of Ipswich, Norfolk.





Pauline Williams, Sheffield on 04/03/2017 at 13:04 regarding Fonthill - a gallery

I have discovered on the 1939 census that my uncle, Leonard C Harris, was a waiter in the Fonthill Hotel. My uncle disappeared from his home in London when he was in his teens (and never seen or heard from again) and his sister (my aunt) who is 96 would love to have a picture of where he worked and any info you may have about him.





mark chadwick, guildford on 09/03/2017 at 15:36 regarding Harry Snook's pictures of buses PAGE 1

It is remarkable that this bus was ordered only 10 years after the S type shown above, was built.





Patricia Aubrey, Acton,London, W3 7BH on 25/02/2017 at 00:11 regarding Hethersett Close, Reigate

Dear Kathy,

Thank-you for your interest in my family. Yes, I have one photo of my great aunt Helena Auerbach. I dont have it scanned at the moment. She was on various committees - I believe she was the Treasurer on most of them - of the Suffragette movement during the 1920s. There is quite a lot of information about her on the internet if you just google her name - and more photos of her. Please contact me anytime, should you want further info. You can email me or call me on my mobile - 07716311400 . Kind Regards - Patricia Aubrey (Auerbach).






Bobby Cadwallader, Aylesbury on 23/02/2017 at 18:12 regarding Reigate County School for Girls / Reigate College, Castlefield Road, Reigate

These are too early even for me. I was at Reigate County from 1962 -1969





kathy atherton, dorking on 22/02/2017 at 18:02 regarding Hethersett Close, Reigate

I am researching the history of the campaign for the vote in the dorking/reigate area. Mrs Auerback (helena, Juliuss wife) was very active in the non-militant campaign and hosted many events at Heathersett. are there any photos of her surviving?





Daniel Woods, Redhill on 11/02/2017 at 21:29 regarding Hardwick Road, Meadvale

I have just bought a house that is in this photo, how do I get a copy? Really appreciate any information.





Alan Conway, Reigate on 10/02/2017 at 15:59 regarding St. David's, Wray Park Road, Reigate

10/02/17. St Davidss is still the headquarters of the Surrey Fire & Rescue Service. This room is still recognisable and is part of the Stores section as the Stationery store.





Alan Conway, Reigate on 10/02/2017 at 16:05 regarding St. David's, Wray Park Road, Reigate

10/02/17. St Davids is still the headquarters of the Surrey Fire & Rescue Service. This room forms part of the stores and is use as an operational equipment store. There is no trace of the first door anymore! but the furthest door is in everyday use!





Alan Conway, Reigate on 10/02/2017 at 16:16 regarding St. David's, Wray Park Road, Reigate

10/02/17. St Davids is still the HQ of Surrey Fire & Rescue Service.
In another photo the room downstairs is called the Boys Library. It is part of our stores while upstairs are offices. The hexagonal room on the right is another office though not always a popular location.
