Is anyone able to throw any light on this Explosion in 1915 in Violet Rd in which Troops were used to evacuate the residents?

Was the Match Factory there then ?

Great Find Bob !

I wonder whether my Great Grandparents were home at the time at No.12 Violet Rd
I know two of their Daughters worked there as machinists.
