Hi my name is Ramond Littler, I to have a photograph which was taken at the same time as this one. I believe that the Class was split up for the photograph due to it's size. From the photograph, the girl first on the front row is Yvonne Collins. I have submitted my photograph which hopefully should be on soon.

Hi Ramond I remember you from shool.
I think that this photo is of the next class.
Some of the children in the other photo are a year older than me. Pam Dumond and Kathleen Parkinson was never in my class.I know most of them.

Hi all, I think Raymond is right class was slit but I think the reason was because the ones in is photo were leaving that year.The first photo is a year or two earlier The Williams twins were younger than there sister SHEILA

Hi' I wasn't in this class and neither was Lilian Withington. We were in the year below. The second row girls I know are- Margaret Boyle, Silvia Simm, Lorraine Crease, Betty Prior, Pat Carney. Don't know the last girl at the end.
