When attending Cromwell Road School in the early 1960s we went to the old British Restaurant for our school dinners. After it had closed down we went to the hall in the Redhill Congregational Church for lunch.

I agree with Peter Burgess's comment.My sister and I had school dinners there in the 50's.We were also born in Cromwell Road and remember cattle being driven down our road to an abattior which must have been very close to the site of the British Restaurant!

When I lived at Ranelagh Road I remember the terrible smell of a Tannery somewhere near Cromwell Road.

I lived in Ranelagh Road and belonged to an orchestra around 1953. I believe it was called the Cromwell Road music Club. It was in fact a full blown youth orchestra, who remembers that? We practised in a School near Merstham and plaYed a few times in the Central Hall
