The Bank of Liverpool and Martins originally opens a branch in the area known as New Eltham, in 1924 at 5 Station Road. In 1932 Martins Bank moves the Branch to 413 Footscray Road, where it remains until being closed – initially due to staff shortages – in World War 2, but without being re-opened. Martins Bank also has a branch at 80 Eltham High Street which is one of the original branches of Martin’s Private Bank which joins with the Bank of Liverpool in 1918.

New Eltham was originally a sub Branch to Sidcup, but on moving to new premises in 1932 it is made into a full Branch and is from that time listed in the London section of Martins Bank’s directories.
