Marriage of Frances Rose Wedd and William Herbert Kefford in 1912

Spring Lane, Bassingbourn

History of Spring Lane, Bassingbourn

Enumeration of the properties in Spring Lane according to the Electoral Rolls had not happened even by 1966. So identification of the pater street numbers with historic properties will require considerable research.
