document confirming ownership of Kurnock's bakery, 1898

My grandfather Alfred Curnock took over the bakery premises at 27 Silver Street from James Kilsby in 1898, as is evidenced by the document on the right.

The family was still trading through the 1930s, as shown by the advert below, from a late 1930s newsletter from Tanners End Mission, and they continued until the 1950s.

During this time, they had opened a second shop in Fore Street, Edmonton.
