Hi I am researching the death of a George Howard/Haward in Deptford in the 1920/30s. He was apparently shot dead and dumped in a toilet near Deptford Bridge. Evidently he was a bit of a small-time gangster who had fallen foul of the wrong people . This is a Family History inquiry for his descendants Thank you

Does anyone know how much of Greenwich Park is going to be destroyed to make way for the 2012 Olympics? Greenwich Park is beautiful and has remained so for a great many years. How many trees will be cut down? Some of the saplings have been donated by individuals in memory of loved ones they have lost. And will the changes remain and be another white elephant in Greenwich or will the park be restored to its natural glory? Before we know it we will have more 'affordable' (that's the in-phrase now) housing built in the park or on the heath. Do the people living in Greenwich have a say in such matters? NO THEY DON'T.

A lovely mixture of people, beautiful buildings, a great uni, the river, the park - need I go on? For those of you reading this who are pining for Greenwich, yes the Cutty Sark has gone into dry dock for two years refurbishment (don't worry it's still here so we can keep an eye on it) the Road Girls School is now luxury flats, the Seamans Hospital is a lovely uni and the one bugbear - yes, we still have the dreaded dome!!!

My Great Grandfather Edward Hancock was on the Whalers in the 1860s/1890s and he and his sister Sarah Ann were born in Greenwich. (1848/50). Their parents James Hancock and Ann Norris were also from the area and Ann's father and brother were also on the Whalers.

On 29th August 2005 and again on 27th February 2006, I posted a message in remembrance of the day we met at the Greenwich Observatory Gift Shop on Tuesday, 16th August 2005. Your appearance was especially unique and you seemed delighted when I reflected on this, referring to the lovely Audrey Hepburn and how you so much reminded me of her. You then asked me to take a photo with you and your friend snapped the picture. You said you were English and were currently residing in Europe. It was only after we said our poignant goodbyes that I realized we hadn't exchanged e-mail addresses. I can only hope that you will find this message and that we can keep in touch and savour the moment. Bye for now. . . Respectfully, Dana Lynne . . . malaya2000@cox.net

Hi, just stumbled across this site and wondered if anyone knew anything about Ball/Gibson families in the Greenwich/Woolwich/Lewisham areas around the early 1900's. I'm mainly looking for an Alec (Alexander Ball) and an Alice May Gibson around 1916. An address I have is 18 Beresford Street, so if anyone know what was at the address it might really help. I know both had stage/theatre connections...? I am also looking for a John William Gibson who was a fishmonger. Any help would be greatly appreciated :o) . Thanks.

Hi! My great-grandparents hailed from Norwood, Charlton, Greenwich way, and I believe my great-grandmother was buried in Shooters Hill Cemetary (I imagine probably my ggfather too). His name was WALTER LAWSON KIRBY, and hers was ROSE ERMINE KIRBY. I just wondered if anyone knew anything of them? The family home was in Lansdowne Road, Charlton, but they spent many years abroad, and may indeed not have married for many years after having eight children together. I'd be very grateful for any information or tips, Leonie huwhallwilliams@aol.com

Can any one tell me the name of the film made in the late 50s or early 60s filmed in and around Charlton, Woolwich and Greenwich about a man suffering mental problems handing out his medication pills as sweets to children standing in the a queue for the saturday morning pictures, and then being hunted down by the police.

29th August 2005. Further to my earlier entry regarding my visit to Greenwich on Tuesday, 16th August 2005, I was privileged to meet you there in the gift shop. Your appearance was especially unique and you seemed delighted when I reflected on this and referred to the lovely Audrey Hepburn and how you reminded me of her. You then asked me to take a photo with you and your friend snapped the picture. You said you were English and were currently residing in Europe. It was only after we said our poignant goodbyes that I realized that we hadn't exchanged e-mail addresses. I can only hope that you will find this message and that we can keep in touch and savour the moment. Bye for now. Respectfully, Dana Lynne malaya2000@cox.net

Monday, 29th August 2005 It was on Tuesday, 16th August 2005, that I was privileged to visit the Royal Observatory at Greenwich and was profoundly fascinated by the historical treasures located there. It was exciting to come to the place where the English taught the world how to tell time.

Wanted: Please, has anyone got any old Photographs,Drawings,prints of the 'Green Man'. The Pub at the top of Blackheath Hill. A 'Youngs Brewery' House I belive.(c.a. 1950-1970.) I drank and learnt Judo there, also of Alfred James Morgan who taught there. The Pub has historical importance and I should like to put this on our website. A great pity they tore it down some time ago. They also had 'Live Jazz' there during the 50's & 60's I belive. Anyone with memories of these things please contact me. John.

I was born in Harden St, Woolwich and spent many happy hours in and around Greenwich Park and the riverside.I saw the Cutty Sark being installed and dry docked etc way back in the 50s, many happy memories of searching for broken clay pipes on the foreshore near the college. Can any one tell me the name of the film made in the late 50s or early 60s filmed in and around Charlton, Woolwich and Greenwich about a man suffering mental problems handing out his medication pills as sweets to children standing in the a queue for the saturday morning pictures, and then being hunted down by the police. Some lovely nostalgic scenes from the 50s

My great great great grandfather Edward Riddle was Master of the Nautical School, one of the Greenwich Royal Hospital Schools, from 1821 to 1852. According to the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association website there is a bust of him "in mausoleum in SE corner of grounds in front of former Devonport Nurses Home, now to be a conference centre and postgraduate hall of residence for University of Greenwich". I would very much like to have a photograph of this bust, and will gladly pay for it. Can anyone tell me how it can be done? Jim Bowman Calgary, Alberta

Hi, Philip. My grandfather kept a card from the funeral service to state his brother was buried at ‘Shooters Hill Cemetery, London’. This card was sent in 1950's. Maybe the funeral service should have printed 'Greenwich Cemetery' on the card. Maybe the cemetery was originally called Shooters Hill? It's very likely that the information you provided is what I have been looking for. Thank you so much:-)

Dear Anonymous, The cemetery you want is where I told you yesterday - on Well Hall Road. Everyone locally calls it, "Shooters Hill Cemetery" - but it is officially called, "Greenwich Cemetery". The main place now for funerals in Greenwich is Falconwood, aka Eltham cemetary/crematorium. I'm sorry to sound dogmatic about this - but my Grandfather is buried in "Shooter's Hill" Cemetery and his wife, my Grandmother, was cremated at Falconwood. I know both places quite well.

Thank you for your help. The cemetery I am looking for is definitely called Shooters Hill Cemetery and not Greenwich Cemetery. I’ve discovered that the cemetery I'm looking for could be located within proximity of Eltham High Street. I will be contacting cemetery services to see if they can help. However, I would still like to hear from people if they know the address for Shooters Hill Cemetery.

I think the cemetery you are looking for is called, "Greenwich Cemetery" - (Do not confuse with the other, "Greenwich" cemetery, at Falconwood!). It is located on Well Hall Road, near to the junction with Shooters Hill - The entrance is just a bit down from Shooters Hill Police Station.

I had to laugh reading about crime in Greenwich being praised on a Greenwich Council website. When my car was broken into we caught them on their second return a week later. They jumped into their car and I rang the police to tell them their names and addresses because I knew them. I wasted my time because nothing has yet been done! Even though they stole a lock from my car and I had the serial number on the box that they left behind I was told there was no proof. How many more times do I have to become detective, get the info and be ignored by Greenwich police? The full story is in my on-line diary at: http://www.angelfire.com/biz6/Psyteric/26aug.html

My wife and I used your Lloyd's of London Ship registry in September of 1996 to look up the information on the ships my grandfather sailed on. We were quite amazed at the detailed information. My grandfather Arthur Kenyon Longbottom went to sea at the age of 14 as an apprentice seaman. His first voyage was in early 1875 from Liverpool to San Francisco, California. The voyage took 110 days according to his journal. He also sailed to Australia, India and other ports of call in that area

Came to Greenwich at the weekend for a different place to see in London and we were very impressed and are seriously going to come back! Fab markets, a lovely atmosphere, it had the lot. Cannot wait to come back and revisit the lovely Greenwich Village.

Roan days were the best of the best. I graduated from Roan Girls in 1978,under Mrs.Scott, although we had had Mrs. Barber,magistrate and historian, as well as dear Mr. Billington, who acted in between. Who could forget Wendy Riddle with her cheerful "hello people", the ever-so out-of-sight, but darn good english teacher,Mrs. Pollack, Mrs. Dilly and of course, our beloved hockey/games mistress, Ms. Johnson."get in those showers!" Pearl Elizabeth Gunvor, I have always regretted our long separation, and what say you Jane, Christine and Julie? I had returned to Jamaica, but after 15 years, decided to move my family to sunny Orlando. It would be wonderful to hear from y'all as well as any of our classmates and teachers.Greenwich and Blackheath are forever etched into my mind, there is an evergreen memory and you are part of that. Honore et Labore. Heather

What a great website. For years I felt out of the loop re my alma mata.I was at Roan under Mrs. Barber, Mr. Billinton and Mrs. Scott from during the 1970's. Who remembers Wendy Riddle our homeroom teacher in 6th form with her cheerful "hello people". For those of us who survived our whacky and wonderful Miss Vincent (history), we are all the better for it today even if 25 years later we still do not remember anything save her cracking up about Wellington and the Papal Bull! Pearl Elizabeth Gunvor are you out there, also Jane W and Christine F? Julie C, Malvena, Hilary, Rhonda forgive my silence - I left Jamaica for the USA in '98. I would love to know about any re-unions planned for next year - If none,let us do it! Miss Cheatham and Mrs. Pollack you were he best, so were you Mrs. Dilly.I have become all of you......

Was anyone out there in cyber space a member of the Sea Rangers (that basically was an option after Guides), based at the Naval College Greenwich 1950-54, remember, among other activities rowing around the docks? Anyone know if there are Rangers still based at the Naval College?

Anyone at Roan Girls in approx 1950-54 and remember going to Roan Boys for the dnacing lessons and remember "snakehips" who we tried to avoid asking us to dance with him? Remember the Dancing Teacher? And what about Founder's Day white gloves and all) when apart from the dancing lessons were the only times we were officially allowed to meet the boys? Any one remember Miss Hough (religious Knowledge) and the diminutive French Mistress who scared us all to death and ruled with an iron rod, and those Grammar lessons? Anyone from our crowd remember the appeal from the parish church (ST Alphege) who wrote to the Headmistress ( was that Miss Barnsdale ??) and asked for girls to come and help start up a youth club and swell the parish choir at the same time? Is the uniform the same green one, same colours, same badge? same motto? Honera et labore. Is the school still there???

Does anyone know what is represented by the weather vane on the top of the Park Cafe in Greenwich Park (at the top, near the General Woolf memorial) please? Is the man an astronomer with a telescope or is he a naval man with a telescope? Crucial clue in our Greenwich Park Treasure Hunt. Many thanks

Greenwich is my home, and I love it to death! Its part of me, I have so many memories here. Again I would like to point out that Greenwich is a borough, and its not all rich with posh people living there, i ain't exactly posh let me tell you! Greenwich is and always will be a south London borough, and south London is keepin it real with the common, normal people. RESPECT GREENWICH!!!
