Market Lavington Museum

A School Register


There’s no doubt about it, lists of names are popular. At Market Lavington Museum we have many lists, amongst them several school registers. The one shown here is rather odd for it has been cut in half and we have just the girls’ part of the list. The register dates from 1937 and features girls aged between about 7 and 10 at the time.

We can see that this particular register was starting just after the Easter Holidays and it features many local names, amongst them are Baker, Chapman, Huxtable, Jenks, Oram and Pike.

These girls will now be about 80. We’d be delighted to hear school memories from them, or indeed from other past students of market Lavington or Easterton School.

Do contact the curator at curator@marketlavingtonmuseum.org.uk with your memories.
