Hello Irene. I knew you when I was at Cromwell Road school. I was Barbara Whiting then. I was looking at photos of Meadvale, where I was born, then, browsing through all the very local places, came upon this wonderful picture. I do hope you got a copy from someone.

The two ladies in the first two comments went to Cromwell Road School and I wondered if the date could possibly match the time I was in the Church Lad's Brigade (St.Mathews Church)and had quite a bit of contact with some of the pupils from the school. This was in the 1947 to 1951 period after which I left school and had to move with my parents back to Sussex. Most names escape me now, but Bob Robinson(and his girlfriend) from a Cromwell Road address,Alan Durrent, and another girl who helped, with her mother at Church Lad's events - Edna Bushnell, from Brook Street(?). I lived in Salfords (Woodside Way) from 1942 until 1951.

I'd love to hear anything about any of them - so many years have passed!!

I have put a group photograph of the C.L.B. Band from c.1947 on the St.Mathews Church part of the web, and welcome any contact.

I went to Cromwell Rd primary school in the early 60's. Just visiting UK now and went looking for my old address 21 Station Rd Redhill and of course the school. When did it close? Can anyone fill me in on a bit of history over the past 50 yrs in the area?

I am too interested in past history of this school as I went there from 1957-1964. I have fond memories of the place. It was at first difficult to track-down, as forgot the road it was on, so long ago. Then discovered it was the "Longmead Adult Education Centre". It appears to be sold now (October 2017) to developers? Sad if they knock this very old Victorian School down, has amazing architecture. No doudt the devlopers will vandelise it by knocking it down, seems all boarded-up right now. We had a cake shop right next to the school, selling what they called, Penny Nelson's, what we know as bread pudding ..... hee hee Whatever happened to my old mate Stephen Fenner .... so long ago now mate !! PS. I was also in the Church Lads Brigade in the mid 1960's from what I recall.
