Hi, I've been looking at a 1911 census of my Coventry ancestors and the address given is Queens Street, Coundon, Coventry. I cannot find this on any maps. Could the name have changed to Queens Road? Cheers

Hello AJTB Wave & welcome to our Coventry History Forum. Street name changes are common to many areas of Coventry as times & circumstances change. I hope that someone will respond to you on this issue. Wave ps. I have had a look at my 1905 street map of Coventry & the only Queens Rd, that I can find, is south of the Sherbourne, a continuation of what we have now, not a Queens St. Sad I do hope that someone can help.

Found this, not sure if it's the correct one? "QUEEN STREET (1869) runs E. from Swanswell Street."

Hi all Wave This is on Rob's scan maps dated 1936. Queen St. But I don't think that it is Coundon. Big grin So I am still not sure.

I have just checked the 1912-13 Spennells Directory and the only Queen Street is the one in Swanswell Ward, Hillfields as mentioned If the OP will email me with the ancestor's name I will check to see if I can find out for sure Thumbs up

I've just realised my error Blush The head of the family was born Coundon. The information you have given me is correct. Sorry to cause confusion. Blush

I found this photograph, described as Queen Street. I wonder if there's a tale to tell about the motorbike?
