Buckland Brewer School c. 1918

Devon Family History Society have transcribed and printed the admissions’ registers for Buckland Brewer village school from its opening in 1877 up until 1911. We also have access to images some later registers. These are very useful documents as they provide date of birth, address and the name of a parent or guardian. They also provide information about migration as when new children arrive from elsewhere their previous school is noted. Future schools are also given for those who leave. There was also a school at Thornhillhead but currently we do not have copies of their records.
