We haven't come across a Baker so far.

Here's part of a page from the 1960 Directory for Moorland Road - Do you know Mr BAKER? at Number 65?

I know that Agnes Ritchie, the last of my great-great aunts from Maycot at 12 Beaufort Road (see RITCHIE), died at 65 Moorland Road in 1960. I don't know why she was there, possibly it was a nursing home? Her three sisters had all died at Maycot, but presumably Maycot had been sold by then.

I think you probably mean 96 Moorland Road - that's the present day Hairdresser.   This road has a fascinating history and deserves some research into it.   Who has family connections with Moorland Road?

There is a Walter Wiseman, born 1893 at Weston, listed in the 1911 census working as an assistant at a restaurant in 2B, New Road, Woolwich. The restaurant owner is a George Collins.

In the 1901 census, he is listed as living with his grandmother, Lucy Wiseman, a retired school teacher, at 88a Albert Road, Portishead.

Walter is listed, with some biographical details, in the Bexley Roll of Honour:

I hope this helps,
