As a local historian in Horley I am trying to find the Bexhill address of Henry Webber in 1915/16. He moved from Horley in early December 1915. He was a member of the Stock Exchange for 40 years and very active in local politics in Surrey and "Good Works" in Horley. At the age of 67 he joined the Army and was commissioned in May 1916 and then moved to France just in time for the first battle of the Somme. He was fatally wounded on 21st July 1916. So he was resident in Bexhill for a comparatively short time. Does anyone have a street directory for that period that might solve this riddle? Heres hoping!

History can be fun!
