I was born in 1943, and lived with my grandparents Henry Charles and Norah Carpenter.  I believe we were living at 63 Mawson Road.  I see there is a gap in the history you display between 1913 and 1962.   They were probably renting the house at the time I was born, and they lived there for several years.  My grandfather was a local policeman, and then became a fireman.
