That sounds like a mis-reading to me. Can you post a scan, or maybe just all the information you have from the census?

Ann12, could it be Birkenhead Xaverians? Not sure but think it was a college or school back then.Can't help much further, although someone else will, no doubt. You might find it on Wikipaedia.

Ann,

If you put a persons name, date of birth and area up, I'll find it and have a look.

Seem to remember Xavarians and St Saviours for some reason, don't know where that comes from just something at the back of my mind.
My mistake it was St Xaviers (pronounced Saviours), just had a hunt around. So it must be St Xaviers Old Boys I think.

Earlier, I read and think it was Wikipaedia, that Xavarians was Roman Catholic College, although it didn't mention Birkenhead, therefore, it was possibly used for many R.C Colleges. So your post would be right, I should think.

Sravannies is the name of a place in County Leitrim, Ireland. The entry next to their birth dates is probably to indicate that they were born there.

Taylor's Delph was one of the largest of the stone quarries on Holt Hill. It's clearly named on earlier maps, occupying the area I've outlined on this 1912 Edition OS map.
