Graves Toxteth park

- Thomas H.W. Walker and his younger brother John Lightfoot Walker attended

There was a boarding school in the centre of Tattenhall. In 1861 it was run by Richard Gray with approximately 19 pupils who seem to come mainly from the Liverpool and Chester areas. Some were as young as 8 but mostly they were in the 10-14 age range. Richard Gray and his wife had 2 sons, who attended the school, also 3 servants and two assistants.

In the Street Directories of 1857 a “National School for Boys and Girls” in Tattenhall was described as “being held in a newly erected and spacious schoolroom. Also a subscription news and reading rooms and a savings bank were held in the same place. Also a Sunday School was held in the same place.” There is just a possibility that this could be the same school which Thomas H.W. and John L. Walker attended. However, in 1896 the Lord Bishop of Chester opened a Home for boys - “Waifs and Strays” on the High Street in Tattenhall (see the link). I wonder if this was the same building as the boarding school which the Walker Boys attended, in the likelihood that it closed some time after they had left?
