    A Charles Haller wrote the melody to "Somewhere in dear England" in 1940.

    And, of course, David Charles Haller is the son of Professor X

    Yes, between the nerdy comix chat and cunx estate agents its hard to get anything useful. I did clock what I took to be a musician and using the same internet as you most likely have I'm seeing a registration in NY for that tune. It's a weird one...

    Maybe another line of enquiry would be whose responsible for the naming of streets at Lambeth. Any takers for that one?

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    It's not on Cressingham Gardens, it's on Brockwell Gate, a bit further down toward Brixton.

    Ah! Yr double down right V Panda, weirdly, that changes everything as it happened in much more recent time (past fifteen years).

    Thank you.

    You may want to go to the London metropolitan archives and consult any street naming files they have, if Lambeth archives can't help

    Might be in council minutes, maybe housing committee

    It may be they do have the answer but not the time to research it for you, why not ask again whether they can suggest any way for you to proceed?

    Again tks Pickman... that it's most likely C21st decision suggest it's outside of my interest but I'd love to know who Mr Haller was? I shall take a walk up there tonight to see what Charles Haller Street looks like I've been corrected by V/Panda...
