Can any one help. I have had a private message via this website,from someone enquiring about Alderminster Road, looking for their relatives. They think Alderminster Road, no longer exists, if there is anyone out there with any knowledge please give any details, so I can forward the information on.
Thank you

The Victorian Streets website lists two:

Alderminster Road BERMONDSEY [1899]
Alderminster Road, St James, Bermondsey, ST OLAVE SOUTHWARK [1881]

If you know roughly where it is, have a look on Booth's poverty map here and you can then compare with the modern street pattern.

Someone asked the same thing five years ago:

From Googling, it seems to have been where the City of London Academy is now on Lynton Road.

Does anyone know anything about the Giles family who used to live at 70 Alderminster Road.

In particular I am trying to trace my great aunt Eliza Giles

It was originally a long road parallel to Lynton Road. But most of the western end was demolished for the expansion of the Bricklayer's Arms goods yard

Although the whole street is shown in the underlying
map on Booth site, only the houses that were then standing are shaded purple (i.e. mixed - some comfortable, some poor)

Hi I had a relative at 9 Alderminster Road. When did the road disappear?

I looked at the bomb damage maps of London and it looks as though the eastern end was pretty much destroyed in the war - see the picture in the link here:[email protected]/sets/72157603838435963/
black means obliterated and purple means destroyed beyond repair.
