LMS Refreshment rooms

Riverside Station

By Ursula Brown

In 1953 my Grandmother came from Eire. On her Travel Identity Card it states LMS Refreshment rooms, Riverside Station, Tilbury, Essex as her address. I do know her husband owned a shop.

I am puzzled as to why this would have been the address for a 38 year old lady. I have tried to find information about the place via Google and failed.

Can you help?

Hello, I have been looking through my grandma's tin. I had been verbally told by my mum, many moons ago that the shop was owned by her Step-dad. Either she was mistaken or my memory is playing tricks, the documents say the shop was owned by my step great granddad in Eire. I found my Step Granddads travel permit card as well. It says he came to Tilbury to work as a porter in 1947 it looks like he came over before my Gran. Possibly marrying her when over here. I would be grateful if anyone can fill in the gaps. The surname of my Grandparents is Healy
