Whilst it may not actually sound that inspiring, the place in question was
actually the Royal Army Clothing Depot (Grosvenor Road Chelsea)and was
responsible for the manufacture and supply of the Army's "uniforms and
necessaries" as they went abroad to maintain the Empire.

I just thought it would tie in well to the other fascinating thread that is
ongoing. I too had an ancestor who worked there at the turn of the century
and was also a resident of Battersea.

Thanks, Delia. I have just been told of this one but she is not
the mother of the three children. That was Elizabeth WEBBER whom
T.H. married 10th April 1855.
My G.Granddad was a Viewer of Boots for the Army. Sounds only a
bit more inspiring than watching paint dry!
"wife of Thomas H. Allen"? I have my suspicions............
Thank you again.......
