This was an interesting set of documents and apart from two people gives you where every one was living in 1939. It becomes quite an important document as the register unlike census forms has the date of birth of everyone. Of special importance is *Sidney Ralph Ganderton, who three years later married Mabel Lloyd Hayward. They then moved next door to Sid's older brother Tom and his wife Edna, who was one of three daughters of the landlord of the Royal Oak at Broadwas.
