    Can anyone tell me what this occupation is please? She is an Inspector wireless of ..'electrica...' ? This entry has "see page 23" written before & after. Does anyone know if there is an index to these notations?

    Also same Family, a young woman listed as 's' for single but using name of the man she married in 1943 just a dash above the name. Any reason why that may be so?

    In addition, the above single young lady using future husband's name was b. 1922 Possibly a brother b. 1920 is apparently blanked out below parents lines. She died in 1997 Sth'end.on Sea. Brother may have died in 1970.

    I think it is 'electricard' . What is the word after it at the very end?
    A prepaid system for electricity???
    Or as 'keypunch' was around even back then!!!!!

    Thank you both, the very last word is not entirely there I think, or covered with a light tape.'Credit' comes to mind but back then??
    Pretty close I think Sue or maybe wireless license card?
    These registration records at times open up more puzzles than answers. :(

    I think it's "wireless & electrical (circuits?)", possibly referring to the fact she worked in a facility producing radios (as we now call them) and other electrical goods, most likely for the domestic market.

    And, I suspect, she may have worked at Plessey's in Ley Street/Vicarage Lane, Ilford, the history of which can be found at

    I used to go to school in Ley Street, so passed by the building (long since demolished) every day.
