Hi, I wonder if you can help me.
My father, Peter Boot, was born on 6th September 1925 at 1 Sherbrooke Road, North West Fulham.
At the time the family lived at 20 Chelverton Road, Putney.
My query is: was 1 Sherbrooke Road a hospital in those days or is there any other reason for giving birth there given that it is some distance from Chelverton Road.
Grateful for any information.
Robin, I have forwarded your enquiry to our Archivist email@example.com
