Does anyone know the fate of Latchmere Grove Battersea?
Sorry to have to tell you but Latchmere Grove no longer exists - it's now called "Falcon Park" and is an open space. My great Gran, and my nan lived there between the wars - maybe they knew your family? Hope the above is of some use to you.
|It was demolished in about 1963 - I used to live there and we had to move out when I was a child.|
I lived there with my mum, dad, older brother and the woman we rented the downstairs of the property from - Bart.

|105 Latchmere Grove|
|Hi Foxtrot. I lived at 105 Latchmere Grove im the first house. We used to call her "Nanny Bull" although we were not related. I was only 10 when we were moved out to Balham in 1960. I think she died a few years before but I can't remember anyone else living there.Our houses were the last to be demolished because they were owned by British Railways and I think leased to Jacobs the Landlord. I don't remember Patrick Hargan but I will ask my dad when I see him today. He is 100 years old and his recent memory isn't too good but his earlier memories are quite good.|
|Spoke to Dad yesterday. Patrick was a lodger and worked on the railway at Nine Elms. The Old lady died in the mid fifties and the house, with no electricity connected, was re-let to a guy who was in the Army. My Dad drilled a whole through the wall in the living room and passed a light cable through it and charged the people a shilling a week for it. Where Patrick Hargan ended up we don't know.|

|Hi, just come across this site. My father and his family lived at No. 7 The Bradens. I was brought up in the Midlands but we always visited Nan & Grandad every year. I remember Jenkins & the Mumfords opposite and Grace & Frank had 2 sons Graham and Geofrey lived at the bottom of the Grove. Cant remember surname. Does anyone remember the lady who made toffee apples by the pub.|
