View Full Version : Draughtsman

We are trying to find out about Ernest Albert SCOTT. He was born in 1876 in Plaistow and died in 1927. Family tradition tells us that he was a draughtsman and that he worked on one of the tunnels under the Thames - and that his name is apparently on a plaque in said tunnel! Trouble is, we don't know which tunnel!!
Has anyone got any ideas... please?
I've been trawling through various sites but with no luck :( However, it might be worth e-mailing The Museum of Docklands - their site is at http://www.museumindocklands.org.uk/ to see if they can help. I seem to remember seeing a plaque in one of the tunnels, but I don't think it had any names (it would probably have been the foot tunnel at Greenwich or Woolwich) As you live in London, you could always try a long walk. Take a look at http://www.fellwalk.co.uk/thamespath.htm ;)

Don't know if this is of any help as it doesn't mention your rellie, but relates to the Greenwich Foot Bridge.

Here's another link that gives the names of all of the tunnels under the Thames.
Hope it's of some help.
