Hi everybody,
My name is Tony Cross ex 306 Shroffold Road 1946 - 1960.
I have tried before but with no success so am trying again to trace Tom. I can't remember the name of the road that he lived in but as you left "up the top "travelling "down the bottom "he lived on the road that went from Downham Way to Bromley Road. Nearing the end of the road there were blocks of 2- 3 storey flats and Tom lived on the second floor with his Father Alec mother Katie younger brothers Alec and Jim and sister Rene. They migrated to Australia in about 1960 the father transferred to Adelaide with De Havilland. Tom was quite a good footballer and played a few games for Juventus Adelaide and there was talk that he moved to somewhere in the Blue Mountains NSW. Jimmy stayed in Downham as he didn't want to migrate.

If anybody has any info please contact me at
My now wife Frances lived at 57 Ballamore Road from the 1940's until we got married in 1960 and then migrated to NZ in 1961 then onto Buderim, Sunshine Coast Queensland in 1999.My wife's maiden name was Day and she is a twin of Margaret, they went to Pendragon and then onto Durham Hill.
there was some mention of a young lad getting killed at the Footbridge, one of the things that I remember was when a youngster climbed the iron railings slipped and was impaled on  a spike. He was quite lucky in one sense as the spike went into his upper leg and no higher.
All the best to the Downhamíites

Tony Cross.

Hello all,
I am trying to trace Tom ( Tommy/Thomas ) Crawford who used to live on Downham. Tom his parents and younger sister and brother migrated to Adelaide in the early 60's they left another brother Jim at home because he didn't want to migrate. Tom played a few games of football for Juventus Adelaide. I understand that Tom later moved to the Blue Mountains area of NSW.

Old friends Brian Price, Worthing and Tony Cross, Buderim , Sunshine Coast ,Queensland both old friends of Tom's would like to contact him again.

Regards to all from Downham if still there or wherever.

I often read Shroffold Road mentioned on the site. Did anybody live near 306. I lived there from approx. 1946 to 1960. Coming down Ballamore past The Green we turned left and lived  just past a lady known as " mad Alice ". Some neighbours were Hearns, Simmonds, Two lots of Whites not related, Gosbee, Minster, Lloyd, Carter and up the road a bit were the Heeneys, two lots of Fox,s again not related Waterhouse, Hodges and the Jacksons.

 I also responded about a girl named Carole Phillips who was a friend of my wife's, does anybody know where she is now ?.

My wife lived at 57 Ballamore Road anybody from that area.

Ring any bells.

Regards Tony Cross
