Hi. Where would 11 London Road be in 1942 and 28 London Road in 1928? I have been trying to locate them on old maps or where they may have been, the bit of information I have is that it ran from Much Park Street (or I'm way out). Thanks xxx

28 London Road Zoom out to see map. It's not a given that the numbering was the same for your two dates as early numbering wasn't the odds and evens style we now use. However there was such a great number of new houses built in the 25 years prior to 1937 that the small quantity of older buildings might have been renumbered in the modern style. Select older maps to work out where 11 was. My guess is that it was the ruin next to the Salvation Army building.

My great grandfather died on 11th February 1922. His death certificate states that it was at 11 London Road. This was one of the addresses used by the Workhouse.

Found this information out, it does seem that by 1942 it was now part of the Gulson Road Hospital. xx

Nice photo of London Road. It reminds me that the houses to the right, but behind the camera, are well below the level of the present London Road. In the late sixties someone restored / rebuilt a mini in the small area in front of a house, but about 5/6 ft below London Road. How it came out was captured in the CET with a crane!

I've finished scanning the few images from the Holmes Family archive from Coventry Archive. Most are rural - you can see the collection in the galleries on Cov Dig. Here however is one of London Road:
