Street of Blue Plaques

JOIN THE BLUE PLAQUE COMMUNITY, discover and share who lived in your house all those years ago. Was it a butcher, baker, solidified soup maker? Xylonite factory boy, goldsmith or ostrich feather curler? LET'S FIND OUT.

Artist and designer Danny will create a plaque for your home featuring the most interesting former resident. Individually researched and designed, each one will be unique and specific to your address.

We have access to the 1939 ID card register which gives us an insight into homes built after 1911! ***

Please note, the spirit of the research is to find interesting former residents of an address and is not intended to be a house history service

We use available online census information, and make every reasonable effort to locate your address but it cannot be guaranteed eg because house numbers or street names have changed, or the address was unoccupied or hadn't yet been built. In which case you'll be advised and refunded in full

* In the unlikely event that NO information is available for your address, we'll offer a full refund.

** we will always search as many censuses as possible and select the most interesting former resident on your behalf but you can curate your own plaque for just £15 more!

*** 1939 residents born less than 100 years ago today, ie everyone born 1916 or later, will have their information redacted, obscured as a form of data protection
