412a Stoney Stanton Road. The home from 1938 to 1940 of Charles and Eliza Curtis and family. 412a stood in a row of seven houses numbered 408, 408a, 410, 410a, 410b, 412a and 412. 412a and 412 were a pair of houses adjacent to; but seperate from, the other five. As a result of the November 1940 bombing 410b, 412a and 412 had to be demolished. 408 to 410a are still in use in April 2016 despite having their roofs blown off in 1940.

Because of the occupation of the Ordnance Works by the Admiralty from 1938 this area suffered badly from the bombing
