A school register in 1947
Where are you now?
As the school summer holiday begins, maybe it is time to consider school in the past.
We are lucky, at Market Lavington Museum to have a number of school registers. They are great for genealogy for they give names, dates of birth and addresses where people lived.
Today we are looking at a register of youngsters who attended Market Lavington School in 1947. Many of these people are still alive and living in our community, so we only include names.
Present day teachers might be horrified at the thought of 40 youngsters in a class.
If you are amongst the people named we’d love to hear from you. Maybe you have memories of school life in the 1940s. Perhaps you could tell us tales of the teachers. Maybe your memories will be jogged by this list of names.
We have, of course, transcribed the names.
