Hi Barry, |
Thanks for the Clegwell list. Do you keep it on a website? Do you have a similar list for Hebburn Newtown Primary Council school?
My relations mentioned in your Clegwell list were: Lane, Miss Doreen; Lane, Mr Robert S.; Thompson, Mr Lancelot G.
Additional information on each is:
(1) Lane, Miss Doreen aka Dorothy. Taught at Clegwell Senior School Girls Dept until her marriage on 10 Aug 1940. (Daughter of Robert S. Lane).
(2) Lane, Mr Robert Strong. Did NOT teach at Clegwell. He commenced teaching at Hebburn Newtown Primary Council school in 1903. Robert retired from Newtown School when he was temporary Head Teacher on 30 Apr 1945, a week before VE Day or the end of the war in Europe (8 May 1945). He had retired 5 months before he was aged 65. 42 years service at the same school.
(3) Thompson, Mr Lancelot George. Taught at Hebburn Newtown school and was then transferred to Clegwell by 28 Aug 1939 under the school re-organisation scheme. Captain in the RA during WWII; teacher of Art and Mathematics (at Clegwell?), then Head Teacher at an unknown school. (Husband of Lane, Miss Doreen).
