@The Pentacle Queen,
I think- if it's Romford - that it is nowadays a suburban town in Greater London and the principal settlement of the London Borough of Havering.

@Walter Hinteler,
Essex is the county they make all the jokes about.* Some parts near London including Romford were absorbed in 1965 and are no longer in the administrative county of Essex.

*You know you've arrived in Essex when you see a sign saying 'Happy 30th Brirthday Grandma'
