Ford House, Bedlington

Recommended Posts

While checking some Probate records I came across the following address - Ford House, 2, St Cuthberts Crescent, Bedlington.  Having lived in Bedlington many years ago I do not recall this address.  Can anyone give me information on this.  Thanks

Any idea which year? It popped up for one of my relatives as well and I think it may have been  in the Humford area but I haven't been able to verify it yet.

The year was 1949.

I may have mislead you with my post. Ford House I've never heard mentioned. It's St Cuthbert's Crescent I'm looking for. The search is still ongoing but If I find it I'll post here. Perhaps you could do the same?

Ford House, St, Cuthberts Crescent was shown on two Probate records for two separate members of the McGlen family.  I have looked at the available maps wirhout success.  I am still looking.

The 1939 register shows a McGlen family living at No 2 St Cuthbert’s Terrace. Obviously I don’t know if they are related to your subjects.

What register would that be, Newbedders?

I'm looking for the crescent and I have a family member born there in 1899 at number 4. I'm also searching maps but not having any luck.

The 1939 was a sort of census performed just before WW2 possibly prior to Identity cards being issued. Members of the McGlen family are actually listed within 3 relatively close addresses: St Cuthbert’s Tce, Millbank Cres and Beech Grove. However there are no results using St Cuthbert’s Crescent as the address.

    • A festive operation aimed at tackling crime and disorder in Sunderland city centre has been hailed a success after crime rates plummeted by 16%.
      Business leaders on Wearside joined Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Kim McGuinness in praising the impact of Operation Kraken after the initiative led to a significant drop in recorded crime.
      Spearheaded by Sergeant Maria Ord and the city centre neighbourhood team, the annual festive crackdown was again run in partnership with the Bridges and Sunderland Business Improvement District (BID), along with Sunderland City Council.
      From November 25 through until Christmas Eve, the initiative saw uniformed and plain-clothed officers target all city centre criminality, specifically adult anti-social behaviour and retail-related offences.
      Now, after the 2019 Kraken operation showed a 16% decrease in city centre crime compared to the previous year, Sgt Ord hopes to build on those successes in the coming months.
      "We are delighted with how Operation Kraken went," Sgt Ord said. "The initiative was about maintaining a hassle-free and safe environment which allowed families to enjoy everything this city has to offer during the lead-up to Christmas.
