My Mother attended Bentham Road Sunday School and I attach her decision card dated 18 January 1920; she was born 6 January 1906. I also attach a photograph of the group that went on a Sunday School outing in 1921. My Mother is fourth from the right in front.
I know nothing more about this Sunday School so can anybody throw any light on it or name any of the people in the photograph? Bentham Road is off Elm Grove, opposite the school. My Mother lived with her parents in Bonchurch Road although her Father died in the May of 1921. I was baptised at St Wilfred’s Church in Elm Grove but there does not seem to be any connection with that Church. I would be grateful for any information.
In the 1950s schools used to go on outings to Hassocks to a wooded area and paddling pool known as Mr Box’s. Perhaps that is where the Sunday school outing went to if Mr Box’s existed in 1921. More detail about outings to Mr Box are in the section relating to Queens Park Infants’ School. Does anyone know anything more about Mr Box at Hassocks?
