My grandfather Percy Aylett owned The Dolphin from 1910 to July 1920. My father and two siblings were born there. Prior to this in 1901, he is listed at his fathers public house at 38 Woolf street, in Bermondsey - the Woolfs Arms. We believe the next owner in 1920 may have been a relative: Charles Alfred Cook, who died at this location in 1932.
Percy then owned The Park Road Tavern (later known as The Hole in the Wall) in Richmond, from July 1920 to November 1921. **
