Cardiff 1920s photo
« on: Friday 31 May 19 10:54 BST (UK) »
My Auntie Phyllis (Phil Jenkins) looks to me to be about 10 in this photo. Iíd like to find out which school she sent to. I donít know if this is a school photo but I guess there is a good chance. My Auntie was born in Splott where her Dad had a Butcherís shop. Iím hoping to use the names on the back of the post card to help find the school and class she was in. Any help or pointers gratefully received :)

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

Do you know what her parents names were?

If she was born before the 1911 census should be possible to find her on that and perhaps work out where she may have gone to school.

Thanks. Yes. I have the 1911 census entry showing her living at 18 Splott Rd at age 1. Her dad, my grandfather, had the butchers shop. She may as a 5 year old gone to Splottlands or Moorland Rd. school. Have tried to find school records but no joy yet.

Have you thought about contacting Glamorgan archives and asking if they have any records for Splottlands or Moorland Road Schools?

https://glamarchives.gov.uk/

They have a contact page.

Or you could try contacting the actual schools themselves.  Most schools have websites these days.

Thanks.  Yes. I have found some of my relatives but not Phyllis. I know certain school records have been lost due to the bombings in WW2.

Interesting.  I'm following the trail of the Hinton twins and have found a 1911 Census for what I think is the rest of their family living in Inverness Place.  I'm starting to think that this may not be a school related photo with my Auntie in Splott Rd, the twins in Inverness Place and Lilian in New Zealand Rd.  Girl guides perhaps ... Thanks.
