Stephen Privett's Memories of 1960s Brentford

I was born in Brentford to be exact 30, Cressage Road (1957). It is so said that it is no longer there. It was all took over by the Haverfield Estate. My Grandparents house was no: 30 Cressage road (John and Edith Beasley). My granfather used to keep pigeons.

I only remember a few names from Cressage road but have a lot of memories. The few names that I do remember are The Gomms, The Inmans,The Clarkes. Peggy and Jack Green who owned the News paper shop just over the Ealing Road. the other end of Cressage Road/Pottery Road on the corner was a bakers (you could always go there the day after and ask for yeaterdays cakes).

My Mum and two Aunts also lived at 30 Cressage Road (Pam and Pauline ) My Aunt Pauline met her future Husband while going to get a tin of Peaches from a shop called Prottos who were opened on a Sunday afternoon (well before Sunday Trading started). My mum (Margaret) married my Dad at St Lawrences church Brentford High Street. I also remember Our Milkman I believe worked for the COOP was named Charlie. I used to go to Ealing road Infants/Junior School.
