My paternal grandmother, JESSIE ANN DAVIES, was born in Madeley on 19 April 1874.  Are there any old school records available that could tell me which school she attended? Any information would be much appreciated.

Hi Peter,

findmypast have school Registers for Madeley, there are three of them. You will need to scroll all the way down to Shropshire, then down to Madeley.

 What you are looking for is in the Education collection;-

http://www.findmypast.co.uk/articles/national-school-admission-registers-and-log-books-1870-1914-image-browse-school-list

​Browse colour images of admission registers and log books from hundreds of schools in Britain. Discover how your ancestor spent their school days in these fascinating and detailed records. Browse by county, school and register type. To search by pupil or teacher names use the complementary http://National School Admission Registers & Log-Books 1870-1914 records.

 

It is an extensive list and includes many in Shropshire from Abdon to Yockleton, but not all villages are included.

Unfortunately one can't just select the school in the first link and go to the records directly, one has to go to the records link and enter the details in the search form.

Regards

Malcolm.

Hi Peter,

Further to my info above, just because FMP has records for only three schools in Madeley that doesn't mean that they were the only ones there. If there were more their records may be at Shropshire Archives

Regards

Malcolm
