Hi Neil, I can't help with that one, I think Helen has exhausted the available directories. They (Smith's) couldn't have tenanted the building for very long. I have looked in a hard copy of the 1911 directory with no sign of an undertaker adjacent the Grapes Thumbs up

The only mentions I can find in Coventry newspapers are to W Smith undertakers and builders mentioned from 1914 until the 1940’s . They had a head office and works in Friars Road and showrooms in London Road. The only Smith I can find in a census for Friars Road is Josiah Smith a builder in 1911. They are still listed in London Road today. The 1914 ad says established 1864. Edited by member, 20th Jul 2021 4:02 pm

Anne, wasn't a relation of yours WH Yardley @ no.7? Would that have been just to the left on those images?

Hi Neil, the building you can see on the right where the road kinks in, behind the lamp post, is number 15. Number 7 is further up the hill.
