Could you show more of the certificate as it is often possible to work things out from the way other words have been written. Could you also tell us where the town/city etc is as that may help.

Looks like Wade Street to me - but it would be helpful to see more of the certificate to compare how the writer formed his letters.

I agree that it looks like Wade; the "a" and "d" are like those in "in attendance".

If it was It was ST at the start wouldn’t it look like the start of street? And it doesn’t. Plus look at those strong horizontal strokes on the Ts
We need the rest of the certificate
