* William Pensiton-Bird. In these years residents were in the main connected to the R101 project and as this man had left the village by 1932 it is reasonable to assume that he worked for the airship in some capacity. Many of the younger men in the Design Team lived in nos 41-44 at some point and it could be that nos 40-44 Greycote were allocated to staff working in the Shorts office.
** Frederick George Smith. In the Electoral registers any serviceman or woman on duty away from home was recorded in a separate Service Register. George Frederick Smith is found on one of these for 1939 and luckily for us is listed as F/Sgt no 346933. Does anyone know of this man?
***Stephen Buckenham is found on the Service Register for 1945,1946 & 1947 so was a member of the Forces (no further details were supplied)
