|WHY THE MOVE?
William H Naylor, born in 1869, was a Black Country man. Yet he moved to London and my grandfather was born in 1897 just after he left Poplar to return to Dudley.
I pondered this, as so many of us do, for a long time.
After some research, I discovered that the Blackwall Tunnel, near to where my grandfather was born (well, one end of it) was finished around that time.
Could this be the answer to my question?
