RECENTLY one of our members, Harry Boughton, was given a list of names by a visitor to the Smethwick Heritage Centre.
Harry believes those named could be a class of Smethwick schoolchildren but he cannot now recall the name he was given of the school.
Would it be possible for you to publish the list in the hope that some (or even one) of the 'children' would see it and respond? Some of the names are quite 'old fashioned' as you see - so maybe it will be grandchildren who recognise some of the names. Boys: William Evans, William Taylor, Arthur Horton, Alfred Bates, William Webb, Frederick Turley, Vernon Smith, Leo White, Charles Turner, Charles Walters, Thomas Walker, Wilfred Smith, Joseph Nash, William Carney, Samuel Goodacre.
Girls: Elsie Johnson, Nellie Holloway, Maud Fripp, Flossie Hartshorne, May Riches, Ethel Timms, Edith Piper, Annie Roach, Gertrude Silvester, Emma Henley, Daisy Ellis, Annie Langford, Dorothy Jones, Emma Danks, Gladys Evans, Edith Cornfield, Alice Bromwell, Gladys Evans, Rose Meacham, Violet Pritchard, Ethel Smith, Rosa Swift, Elizabeth Braznell, Marjorie Maycock, Kate Lowe.
With all best wishes and thank you for the news, information and stories you give to us.
