There were lots of schools called Christ Church.  This particular one was in Everton.

Thanks to Liverpool Record Office for the photo, of the building in Christian St.


Kay has sent me this photo (below) of her uncle, Robert MACKLIN, at Christ Church school some time in the 1930s - he may have known Lucy STOPFORTH!  Robert is on the 2nd row from the back, 4th along. What a serious group!


Degsy has sent in this report card and photograph of his grandmother Lucy Emma STOPFORTH, (below left, as an adult) born 1896, died 1927. She lived in Collingwood St, and later in Daisy St.

I’ve been trying to find out about Ms CROFTON, Headmistress in 1910. There is a widow, Emma CROFTON, listed in the 1901 census living in Cressington Park. She is a widow, living with her brother and is listed as a schoolmistress. Everton would be a fair hike from there, but with trams and so on.  She was 52 in 1901, though, so she’d be 60 or so in 1910. Still, you never know!  She’s not listed in her own right in the directory of 1911, although her brother Stephen WILLIAMS is still at the same address.
