Hi,
My g gfather John Roseblade lived in North Woolwich in the 1880's. I've
been told that he worked laying the first telegraph cable to France.

Don't know if there's any truth to this but would like to know if I can
get records of a telegraph company from that time.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
