There is a collection of photographs in the datastore.
My father went to boarding school, how this was funded I am not sure. There was little in his mother's will to suggest that there were funds available to fund a private education. However I have snippets of information from his school years. I did find on the internet from Epson school a request for information. This is reproduced below:
HOLMAN HOUSE: LEAVING YEARS 1931-1940
This is a list of Old Epsomians who left HOLMAN between the years 1931 and 1940 for whom we have no record of address or whereabouts. We would be most grateful if you would cast your eye over the following list, and if there is anyone known to you, please email any information to email@example.com
Thank you for helping us track them down!
Both the aunts ere nurses. T'ig and T'Edith were both nurses, both were born in India. Aunt Edith- T'Edith was a headmistress, extensively traveled and published - she will have a page to herself. Aunt Grace - T'ig was a very able nurse too. T'Edith was the tall one, and T'ig was short and dark. Both were unmarried. On reflection they did seem like bookends.
Chance to extend a little further into my fathers career and link to another page about his time as a teacher. He always retained strong views and silent, yet he was able to speak out when he chose. This was an example.
