Kelly's Directory of Warwickshire 1940 Kelly's Directory of Warwickshire 1940.
A huge directory covering Warwickshire in 1940.

One of the great advantages of a "late" directory such as this is that it is so easy to trace heads of households either by name or by street address. In the main towns each street and every numbered house is here, together with the head of household and their occupation. Don't think of it as being just a 1940 resource, you will find all branches of your family, and their addresses, and then go look at those same addresses in all earlier resources. That's the kind of information that will pull down those brick walls in your earlier research.
