"My mother in law - Rose Taylor - lived at 105 Albany Road. Her father was a baker. Has anyone any information about the bakery at all, such as it’s name and whether it was at 105 Albany Road ... [and] also the Lady Franklin?"
Matt - I believe the bakery you have in mind was Stevens. Both my father and his brother in law (my uncle) worked there for several years. No 105 Albany Road was on the corner of Calmington Road. I remember it as a dry cleaners. Stevens was at 125 Albany Road with R White's mineral water factory opposite. I believe that the Lady Franklin was on the corner of Bagshot Street but was hit by a V2 rocket in the closing weeks of WW2. Hope that helps you.
