    Smile Red Cross Street in Southwark cir 1837

    I bid you all hello

    Does any forum members know where I am able to locate Red Cross Street, St.Saviour Southwarks in surry (I think) I have tried without any luck to find its location this street apears on census and B/Cirtificates but as long sinces been removed my guess its that is now a Supermarket or worse.

    is there any place that such street maps could survive or do we have anyone who may have detaisl for the above location.

    I bid you all a good eve.

    The LCC street listing confirms what Finbar says.

    If you have a look at birds eye view on multimap, you'll see that the street appears to have been completely redeveloped, aided no doubt by certain events in the 1940s.

    You say c1937, how circa?

    in 1861 for example it is in the census registration district 13. It was Surrey until 1889 when it became London.

    It once ran from Mint Street to Park Street. I am not 100% sure but maybe Mint Street is now Marshalsea Road so the above posters are correct and it is now Redcross Way.

    If you wish to go back in time.
    Charles Booth walks the local streets. http://booth.lse.ac.uk/

    In 1899 in Southwalk, Walk 7 he describes Red Cross Street.
    There is Stanhope Buildings, Mowbray Buildings, Falcon Court, Birdcage Alley, Woods Yard and the Hall, the Gardens and much more.....

    Mutley, what a fantastic site. My husband's grandfather was born in Red Cross Street in 1896, son of Italian immigrants, so this is absolutely fascinating - particularly to me as a former sociology student.

    You are welcome Paul, glad to have you joining our merry little band
    I have edited the thread title for you to 1837 it may help you get a better response. It is a very easy typo to make.

    Good Luck

    I have also got a map Currents map showing Redcross Way but cant seem to
    get the two to corrispond at to where it should be I got a rough idea but could you (or anybody) pinpoint the location of Redcross Street.

    Thanks
    Enjoy you Eve

    Paul, pretend you are walking south over Southwark Bridge.
    On an olde map you will cross over Bankside
    Cross over Park Street
    then turn left down any of the next few streets, Union Street would be a good one.
    That leads you directly into Red Cross Street.
    It runs parallel with the street that runs from Southwark Bridge to Borough Road.
