Hello Boreham Hub!
Saw your details on Streetlife and wondered if anyone from Boreham remembers anything about the London families temporarily housed there during the blitz in 1940.
My grandfather William, his wife Hilda and several children were housed somewhere in Boreham, with a family, when their house was bombed some time in 1940. They lived in New Cross Sth London. William worked for the Gas company. They eventually got a council house in Warwick Square near the 'Home School' next to Admirals Park.
My mum, who was 13 at the time, thinks the family may have lived with a single man whose house had a back garden where the A12 is now.
Hope to hear from you.
