In September, 1895 Edwin Still was living at 41, Lambeth Road, and was working as a 'cellarman'; I do not know which pub as yet, but his first wife lived at New Road, Lambeth when they married. I wonder whether there was a pub thereabouts. He died nearby on 24/10/1928 at 76, Harleyford Road, Vauxhall. I can find no record of him on the 1911 census. ***

I knew my Grandfathers sister Daisy Size ran a pub, with her husband Ernest Hollidge called the Kings Head around the Elephant & Castle area in the 1930's. He died there in 1937. I also know that it was bombed in 1941 (family tell me this). I have been researching this for some time and after looking at the place of death (also 1937) of my gt grandfather Harry John Young Size (Daisy's father) I discovered it was 96 New Causeway which indeed was The Kings Head.  *

After the bombing of The Kings Head;  Daisy Hollidge (nee Size) went to work with her brother William Thomas Herbert Size at the Cock Hotel, Sutton Surrey, William was the Manager there from 1937-1950 ish. *

In 1925 to 1927, E W Hollidge is to be found at the Elephant, 119 Fenchurch Street; In 1927, he is also to be found at the Builders Arms, 12 Hammersmith Bridge Roadand and at the Kings Head, Newington Causeway by 1928 according to the BT Telephone Directories
