Town Sign Unveiling

Perry Green 1953

We are trying to name the people in the photograph below, can you help?

This photograph was taken at the unveiling of the Billericay Town Sign on Perry Green, London Road. The sign was erected by the Billericay Society to commemorate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. We know that No. 6 is Mrs Cater, President of the Society, who donated the sign and No. 3 is Geoffrey Amos who designed and carved the sign; No. 4 is John Burrows JP

The photo was produced by Valerioa Studio in the High Street

  • Although I lived in Wickford, I had many friends in Billericay, one of whom was Robert Porteous who lived with his parents in a house which fronted onto Perry Green. I remember the sign being erected and as I recall, it carried some kind of sponsorship by the Council for the Protection of Rural England so, consequently, Perry Green became known among we rather disrespectful Goon Show fans as “Rural England”.

  • I think number 2 is Brian Edwards who was a solicitor.
    Number 5 is Mrs Smith the wife of the Vicar of Billericay up to early 1950s, I sang with her in the choir at the Parish Church Number. Number 7 might be Mr Blatchford who was a member of Billericay branch of CPRE

  • I think number 8 is the Methodist or United Reform minister, the Rev Wilkinson. He lived in the Manse in Chapel Street. I was in the Girls Brigade with his daughter Mary.
