St Chad's School - date unknown

St Chad's School

I have only just recently come across this St Chad’s School photograph and thought it might be of some sentimental value to those in pic!
I’m in it: Ted Crook, and I was surprised to see my cousin Marina (Carr) I always thought she was a year above me. Other names I can remember: Ron Atkinson, Michael Barratt, Charlie Eldridge, Cheryl Merchant. Maria Dichomodes. That’s my lot!

  • I think the date of the photo is about 1960 as it looks like we were leaving age, could even be early 1961

  • Hi Andy,
    Not on social media. It might have only been a brief time but I have found immeasurably pleasurable. I only use email. It is great to know that people I grew up with are still here!?
    Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  • Rosie’s fine, thank you for asking. She lived in the suburbs of Manchester for a few years. She now lives in Suffolk. Lyn Allen – yes!? Every I read your reply the memories come flooding back. This is not a comfortable forum for me. Too public. Which is a shame, because I have really enjoyed chatting and reminiscing.

  • Yes Ted me and Rosie had a short courtship, I remember Lyn Allen was sweet on you, and the time we tried to ride our bikes to St Albans to see a girl you had met on holiday, how is Rosie?

  • I’m really good, thanks. Nice surprise you replying.
    I keep having a recurring memory that you had a thing about Rosie (!?). Also enjoying retirement on Canvey. It’s great talking. I think we’re in danger of taking over this website. It’s truly good to know that you are still around. I think like a lot of us at our age now have lost a lot of family and friends. That’s a bit morbid after not talking to each other for so long!?

  • Hello Andy,
    I did remember you. Forgot to put your name down. Whoops sorry! I think one of the back row is Frankie Grey? Not too sure of the rest though.
    How are you keeping. Well I hope. Great to hear from you. Some really fond memories and school and after.
