Rainham Telephone Directories 1908-1923

Transcribed by David Auger, OPC for Rainham
Editorial Notes:  Transcriptions of 10 different telephone directories for Rainham ranging from July 1908 to September 1923 have been merged into one file and alphabetized by surname, followed by given name and then arranged by year of directory, from earliest to latest.  I felt that arranging the file in this fashion would produce a broader picture of one's ancestor or family member as one is able to see, instantly, how long a particular individual was domiciled at Rainham.  This arrangement can provide a beginning year and a year at which an individual was associated with the parish and allow a researcher to formulate a hypothesis that could provide direction for a stalled search.  As an example, Louis Alfred Latimer Carter was listed in the directories of September 1920 and September 1922.  For some unknown reason, he was not included in the directories of March or September 1923.  Is this indicative of a change of residence by Mr. Carter to parts outside of Rainham's directory area?  Or, was he out-of-the-country, or had he died by March of 1923?  Only further research will provide the answer, but at least some preliminary hypothesis can be formulated as to the status of Mr. Carter.  It should be noted that corporations, agencies, societies and business have also been included in these listings.
