Chapel Row

I believe this is also in the St Clare Street area , near Fountain Tavern but cannot find it on the map.
They are indeed, but not too much, I will put up a 1878 1:500 OS of the area of Richmond Villa/Fountain Tavern; I think this would be Chapel Place, so named for the original Bible Christian Chapel at the end of it, where there are shown these modern houses.
 
My grandparents and my mother lived in Chapel Row. Somewhere on a previous page someone had listed the names of persons who had lived in a particular street way back when (obviously from a census) does anyone have a list of names of persons living in Chapel Row in the early 1900's?
 
I have images of the 1902, 1906 and 1914 Kelly's Directory; I will have a look for you for Chapel Row.
You can always look and search for free in the 1901 and 1911 census online, but the actual pages are at a charge.
 
I have looked through Kelly's for 1902, 1906 and 1914, but of the three years and 12 houses,
all I can see is for 1914.
Mrs Corin Chapel Place
Miss Mennear - St Clare Lodge, Chapel Place.
Barnes Richards Chapel Place.
There could be reasons why no reference. They did not pay their 5 shillings for an entry, the address is included in St Clare or I did not spot it in the thousands of entries. A project that I have is to transcribe the three years, to make it easier to search, I only looked in the private addresses, but maybe all twelve were commercial.
I will try and think out what else I have.
