Harrow WW2 Submariner,s house cleared after bereavement
Clearance Of World War 2 Hero
Avery Associates recently carried out a house clearance in Harrow, London HA1 belonging to a second world war naval seaman who had sadly passed away. The London house clearance was a normal job as far as house contents clearance was concerned but we were lucky to have been able to view important memorabilia relating to the war hero. The mans son and our client had collected the war time information and gave us the pleasure of viewing his service record. As well as Harrow we have carried out house clearance in Wembley, Ruislip, Pinner, Northwood, Stanmore and Edgeware.
