Lawrence Woodcock – 10 Maiden Lane

Lawrence Woodcock was born in Uppingham in 1896. His father, George, was a bread and biscuit maker on Adderley Street. Lawrence did not grow up in Stamford and probably just came to work there. In 1911 he was a butcher’s assistant to Dean Swift who had his butcher’s shop in part of Digby House on Maiden Lane at that time.

Woodcocks later had a bakery at 13a High Street and he may be connected to them.
