RA 57. A Guide to Surrey Schools & Their Records. Nov 2011.


Compiled by Cliff Webb, who writes in the introduction: ‘The records of schools can be useful supplements and substitutes to others for the pursuit of genealogical research, and have considerable value for family history purposes in their own right. This is an attempt to list all educational establishments within the area covered by the ancient county of Surrey, excluding the old London County Council (LCC) area (which are covered by my Index to London Schools and their Records published by Society of Genealogists Enterprises, Ltd), and any records of genealogical interest. . . . . Schools were required to keep certain records under various school codes. For example the Elementary School Code, 1903 laid down that all schools should have (a) registers of admission, progress and withdrawal (b) attendance registers and (c) a register of summaries’ 155 pages, A5.
