I believe that one of my ancestors was a Landlord at The Greets Inn, Warnham, West Sussex.

I have been in touch with the Pub itself but they say they don't have a list of past landlords.

How do I go about getting confirmation that a
Gutsell was landlord there ?

Have you tried trade directories?

You can access some at www.historicaldirectories.org/hd/ . It's not the easiest of websites to use but if you're patient you can usually find what you're looking for.

I have had a look Mary, but can't see it there.

I don't think it was actually too long ago - probably post World War II.

I was thinking about approaching the relevant Brewery but there is no mention of that on their website !

I still haven't been able to get confirmation but I now believe that I have the name :-

Alfred John Gutsell (1915-1975)

You could contact the people at the following link:
http://www.westsussex.gov.uk/leisure/ex ... vices.aspx

They should be able to tell you if they have any trade directories post 1945. If they haven't you could try searching the electoral registers.
