Hello Lawrence,

There were girls I knew named Crumley, and Coyne, but I don't know these boys, as far as I can see!! (Long time ago!!) I lived in Primrose so went to The Huts in Finchale Terrace for a short while before going to The Hall.

Vinnievinyl, if you look on the right of the page you will see a Jarrow handbook.

This will take you to a website by Patrick Brennan called Donmouth.

Click on local history and then photo titled St Bedes and theres loads of St Bedes photos on their and some with the teachers you've named.

Hope that helps.

Hughie Cunningham was my great-uncle but he didn't let that put him off. I was regularly in trouble for not going to 9am Mass. I would go to early Mass so I could get my papers done. It was always a good idea to remember what colour vestment the priest had on as that was your only proof although sometimes a lucky guess would do. Green was usually a knoccking bet

I also lived in Primrose (chillingham Ter) and went to the huts. I remember filling up the coal bucket for the teacher.
