And here you go, it actually mentions it was previously a private school - Tintern House

It was a Preparatory School, corner of Tintern Dr and Upton Rd, Moreton.

Here's an update. Have now discovered that my Grandfather was indeed a Chief Steward and also a Purser on the SS Burma (Capt Cattanach) plying the route to Rangoon and back. It's amazing what comes out of the woodwork when you stumble on the right source!

Thanks again to all for their contributions. It would seem that the Tintern House School was probably the inspiration for my father's false declaration of "Intern House School, Balloch" as his place of education.

Can confirm that this school still existed in late 1940's early 1950's as my parents had me enrolled to attend and then for some reason I ended up going to Lingham Lane - possibly it closed then.

The address of 6 Sea View Road, Wallasey has been ringing a bell with me - just realised that it is the address of my Grandfather's brother at the time of his marriage in February 1928. His surname was Winrow. Not sure who else might have lived at the address as his parents and sibling lived in Liverpool. I also had another relative living in Digg Lane, Moreton and their surname was Adams. Incidentally, Digg Lane would only be a five minute walk to Tintern House School. In the 1939 census living at 'Claremont' Digg Lane was a Harry James Clifton Maxwell who was a relation of my ex husband. I do not know if this Harry was married or not.

MKiwi,

Are you sure the above name is correct?

Harry James Cliverton Maxwell married Dorothy Joan Clarke, 1953, Wallasey.

bertieone, I always thought that one of his middle names was Clifton and his mother Elizabeth named him in her will as Harry James Clifton Maxwell but I am sure they must be the same person. Incidentally in 1939 he was living in Claremont, Digg Lane together with his widowed mother and siblings Hugh (a widower) Samuel and Dorothy and there was also 1 closed record that I think was Hugh's infant son Charles

Definitely the same person - his mother was Elizabeth Ann Cullip. Amazes me how many different ways names get spelt. My own maiden name was McDiarmid (that's how my father spelt it), but in my family tree direct descendants have spelt it 17 different ways - oh well adds a bit of excitement to research!!!
