The above link to Multimap.com shows you the modern-day road layout. You can see exactly where Somers Town is in relation to Euston Station & St Pancras Station, sitting just in the middle of the two. Just about middle, near the top you can see the cross that represents Old St Pancras Church, while the cross at the bottom (just under Euston Station) represents New St Pancras Church.




Gyoury's are privileged, since I doubt that many people have modern buildings that could 'represent' the birth of their surname. St Pancras Church still stands, representing the birth of our name in a religious sense, while the British Library now occupies the site where the Gyoury family started & evolved. A truly fantastic monument full of history for us all to be proud of.
