If you are going to visit Maidenhead, the library have a local history department, they may be able to help you.

I lived in Cordwallis Road and went to the Primary School called Ellington (its opposite the bottom of Cordwallis Road) It may be worth checking in addition to St Lukes.

I've only just joined and come across this thread. I think some of the schools mentioned are much later than the period you are looking at. I think Ellington opened about 1932. I think St Lukes was probably later as well.  The only schools I know of in 1903 were:

National Schools, East Street
Wesleyan Schools, King Street
Boyn Hill Schools
St Pauls, Albert Street
British Schools, West Street
Braywick School
Roman Catholic School, Cookham Road
West Street Council School (from 1904)
Brock Lane Council School (from 1904)

Hope that helps

 Hello Imber,
Just to say, a very warm welcome to Rootschat. A very friendly site, where we all try to help each other, search for the ancestors.

As there are many resources available, please just ask, somebody somewhere is sure to help.

Happy hunting.     Lesanne.  :)

The Berkshire Unitary Authorities share the record office and Library Service and a number of other things like that.
The UAs jointly fund the BRO (or 5 of them do) but the libraries are separate services. Maidenhead has a particularly good local histories section.
Berkshire as a council of course no longer exists except for those of us interested in history.  Its nearly as dead as Middlesex.
Berkshire existed long before county councils were invented and still exists today. There is a Lord Lieutenant and an Archdeacon - and numerous Berkshire organisations.

Hi Anyas and Lesanne,
Have just found your thread!  My mother and her brother (b. 1908) went to East Street School, she was born in 1910 (so in school from 1915) and lived in Garden cottages which was very near at the end of St Lukes Road.  I have a very tattered photo of a few pupils.
  My Grandparents, on the 1891 census, were living in Denmark Street with their two children.  They also lived at Hitcham Bucks just over the river.  Also Waldeck Road and Reform Road Maidenhead. Name Dobson.
The way this is is going we could soon have every family that lived in Denmark Street!!!  Any information on Garden Cottages would be much appreciated
Regards, Abiam

I must ask Grandad who else lived in Denmark Street and Cordwallis Street
My brothers went to East Street.
My Coxheads lived in Garden Cottages, Bastons in Waldeck and Reform.
