    Default 2 Grove Road, Richmond

    Not sure if I am posting this in the correct Forum.

    I am trying to find out if 2 Grove Road, Richmond was a residential house in 1947, or perhaps a nursing home or hospital.

    I have a death certificate and this is the address of the deceased.

    I have checked Google maps but the car wizzed past and so I can't see if this number still exists.

    Would anyone know or have access to electoral rolls so could tell me who was resident around this time.

    The Hospital Records Database has an entry referring to Grove Road Hospital (closed 1974), which was formerly the Richmond Institution and before that the Richmond Union workhouse and infirmary. I haven't yet found a precise street address for it. Perhaps old street directories will help?

    It is marked 'Richmond P.L. Inst.' (Poor Law Institution) on this map of c.1940:

    My 1920s street map shows it unambiguously as Union Workhouse & Infirmary.
