    I wasn't sure where to post this query. I think I have correctly interpreted this address as Birkbeck Road. image.jpg

    This was the address of a couple who married in Holy Trinity, Tulse Hill in the Parish of Lambeth in 1872. I cannot find this road in 1871 in Lambeth to confirm who was living there. It exists in 1881 in Streatham. image.jpg

    You may have it there, I pondered Birkbook, Birkbeek moved on before I considered 'beck' which sounds more correct.:) looks better when larger.

    Mr Google confirms.

    Thank you, can anyone find the street in 1871 please? ( She asks rather sheepishly. I wish we had smilies on iPad.)

    If it is Birkbeck Road near Thurlow Park Road,
    try RG 10/719, ff.60-62

    From 1871 street index here.

    I have been beaten to the punch again but note that the registration district is Wandsworth, not Lambeth.

    If you're looking on a current map, it seems Birkbeck Road became Birkbeck Hill.

    Many thanks, Peter and Huncamunca. Whilst I didn't find the expected couple I may have found a clue to help solve the puzzle. An uncle was living in Birkbeck Road and may have brought up his sister's child. I now have to work out whether Mary Ann Stotter was really Mary Ann Webb.

    Unfortunately they are two separate individuals,
