My Grandfather, Frederick John Putner,  was the Publican at the Lord Derby, after Edward Haylett. He was previously the Landlord of The Brewery Tap in Holloway Road, North London. He died in 1942. and although his 2 sons were serving in WW2, my Granny continued to run the pub until her sons returned. They then, in 1945 or 46 took over the running of the Lord Derby. They were Reginald and Frank Putner. ***

My uncle Reg Putner ran the pub along with my aunt, Doris. They sold up in the 1960s and took over another Courages pub in Cockfosters, the Trent Tavern, now sadly demolished. The Putner family  were well known music hall stars back in the 1900s. *

My family, Thomas and Popsy Grehan took the tenancy of the Lord Derby from 1963 to 1968 and then moved up the hill to The New Cross House until 1971. **
