Seeking information on Mum who was brought up in Herne Hill


My family now live in Essex but our parents from my mums side of the family (2 sisters and 1 brother) were born and raised in Herne Hill. Sadly all three have now passed away but I would like to find out more about Herne Hill as my mum spoke about her childhood there so fondly.

My mum Rita Feekery (maiden name and name when in Herne Hill) was born in 1930 and would have moved away from the area around 1955 ish.
