    I'm finding these records most informative,turning up dates of birth, addresses etc. But also the 'reasons for/cause of leaving' column can be quite amusing as well as informative :

    21 October 1901

    * " Not qualifying to take part in a concert.Took umbrage and left for the Wesleyan School" *

    Another reason which is not amusing, in fact quite surprising, where a 6 year old girl in 1902 is removed from school 'to assist with houshold duties'

    Here are some contrasting reasons appearing on the same page :

    Ladies school

    Full timer at Victoria Mill

    also (quite a shock!) one of my wife's ancestors (gt uncle) aged 10:

    "Accidentally Killed. See log book 8th March"

    * To take umbrage (or umbridge - no, nothing to do with 'The Archers') is to take offence *
