The photo shows Headmaster, Mr John Steel and Mr Brewer who later became the Headmaster. Recognise any of the children?

In 1949/50 I was in class at St Catharine's School aged 7 when we noticed a number of staff returning dressed in dark sombre clothes, we were told they had attended Mr Steel's funeral. I have no recollection of him (nor Mr Brewer come to that) and was intrigued as to who he might be, this is the first glimpse I've had of him and for that I'm grateful - thanks for posting.

My dad Harry Stewart was born in Wigan on Vere Street in 1925. He attended St Catherine's School. His older bro's Billy and Robert also attended as did their younger bro Jimmy. All born on Vere Street. Harry was a talented footballer and later played for Huddersfield Town from 1948-1951. Did anyone out there remember the family?
