  1. Great to see my dad NORMAN BURDETT in the photo, third row last far right he his 90 years old and was over the moon seeing his old school friends hope to hear from anyone who knows norman BURDETT

    • I looked at the pic closely to see if maybe my Mom was on there. She grew up in Killamarsh (born Feb 1924). Lived in Bridge street. Her name was Betty Buckley.

    • Hi Lynda its good to know people who have left Killamarsh are finding themselves or relatives in these old photo’s. Your dad may remember one of his class mates by the name of Ron Wells. A few weeks ago Ron celebrated his 90th birthday and I was lucky enough to be there. We had a lovely day reminiscing and as I keep in regular contact with him I will ask if he remembers your dad. He lives in Louth now with his wife Doris and both are doing pretty good for their age. There is a list of names under the picture so you will see Ron and believe it or not he is still recognisable from the photo after all these years. A couple of kids to the left is my uncle Brian Gascoigne who was cousin to Ron sadly gone as is most of the pupils but I will mention your dad to Ron next time visit. Keep looking you may find someone else as new photo’s keep coming in. Janet Heritage group member
