He lived in Brockley, in south London

My search found the young Walter Southey living at Arabin Road, in Brockley, South London, with his parents - Walter and Emma, and his elder sister - Lilian. They had a lodger - Mrs Hawes.


The Air Ministry form indicates that the family later lived in Drakefell Road, still near Brockley.
