You're more than welcome Barry. There is a point on which you may be able to help. In your description of Princess Street you mention the bombing of July 1940. My grandad's cousin was living in the street at the time as was her mother in law a few houses down. Her 14 year old son William Howard went to spend the night with his grandma but her house was hit and they were both killed. In trying to find where Princess St is now, the best reference seems to be the Royal Oak. So would Princess St now be Staple Rd?
