Pupil database


This database is drawn from several sources, each containing its own selection of data. Thomas Cox’s book1 and the Admission cards were transcribed by Rose Taylor, Andrew Kafel and Vernon Brearley. The, rather shorter, early 20th century class lists and Education Board registers were transcribed by John Hudson before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. In the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and, with the assistance of Marie-Rose Fielding at Crossley Heath School, work on checking the outstanding Class lists has resumed and revealed that some classes were completely omitted in the course of the previous work.
