1871 census - Shrewsbury School, Shropshire?
« on: Saturday 23 March 13 08:09 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for the Shrewsbury School on the 1871 census, can anyone tell me its location on the 1871 census?

I've tried address search on FindMyPast but that didn't find it.....

If you search for the Headmaster, Henry Whitehead Moss, in Shrewsbury, you'll get the school as well.

Thank you Graham! That was quick!

Found the school immediately but not the boy I was expecting to find there.

He was noted as being at home but inserted between two others almost as an afterthought, which made me suspect he was also entered on the school census page.

Another little mystery solved.

Thanks again
