Alfred's & Edith's address in 1911 was Woodside, Winkfield. I think Woodside was a district not a road, although there is a Woodside Road. Curiously an old student of mine has said that he lives in the house once occupied by Alexanders, at the far westen end of Kiln Lane, Woodside, Ascot.

Alfred became a Carter / Coal merchant and lived in a wooden house in Kiln Lane. My mother says that she had helped to nail the boards of this house. She was born in 1912, so their move from one end of Kiln Lane to the other was, perhaps in the 1920's. My memory from the 1950's is of a small house and a large garden with stables,sheds and piles of coal. Next door was a large pond, an old clay pit, opposite was the brick works run by a Mr Sarny. At the top of the road was a wood yard, lots of felled trees ready to be cut into planks. All this is now new houses. The current postal address is The Nook, Kiln Lane, Winkfield, WINDSOR, SL4 2DU

Alfred lived in this house until his death on 10 Feb 1959
