Skipton Methodists 1939
If you have ancestors from Malhamdale the website www.kirkbymalham.info does provide alot of sources for researchers. Of particular interest is the “History of Education in Malhamdale” section. Plenty of information about the various schools and old photographs, such as those shown below:
Mr Winnerah and Miss Bell with the Kirkby Malham United School pupils circa 1927
Malham Tarn School c1900
Kirkby Malhamdale United School 1908
senior class with Mr Albert K Turner, the head teacher of the United School.
Hello All, Now that we appear to have completed all the available school admission registers, I have been searching for other sources we can transcribe. I have come across an excellent register of local volunteers from World War One. It is an excellent source as it starts in 1914 (between census years) and gives a lot of personal information. Please see below. I have already made a start, transferring the information into a spreadsheet.
There are approximately 500 records, so plenty to go at. If you can help please contact me.
