Hello, I'm new to this site.
I'm trying to find out about At Hilliard's school, I believe my father attended probably around mid 1950's.
His name was Jeffrey Welford. He never spoke about his childhood, he was an adoptee. I have very little information about him to go on, but he had mentioned he was in boarding school in Mickleton.
My father passed away in 2019 and I'm trying to find out more about his early life.
I'm hoping there is someone out there who may remember him( he would have been 75 this year) or anywhere I could access record's or information.
Thank you for reading
Kind regards
Julie

Hi Girl Guide,
Thank you for your reply and the link to the forum. I've had a read through and my dad is mentioned in one of the posts. It looks like a lot of fun was had and also a bit of mischief too.
Hopefully I can find more information in the future.
Thanks again
Julie  :)
