There are 26 entries in Ancestry British Phone Books 1880-1984 for Frank K Croucher address 67 Devonshire Road, number Bexhill 2204 in 1937-1938 (W H Croucher & Co Frtrs had the same address but number Bexhill 440), 47 St Leonards Road Bexhill 2204 in 1938 to 1944 (W H Croucher & Co Frtrs, Grngrcs, Firsts were still at 67 Devonshire Road Bexhill 440 in 1938, also at Ninfield Road Bexhill 1612 in 1939, and only at 48 London Road Bexhill 2551 in 1941 with no later entries), and at 20 Collington Avenue number Bexhill 2204 between 1946 and 1962.
