I attended Worple Road Primary school between 1973-1976
Please, add me to your list I was the lollypop lady outside the Blue School for 40 years. But I got made redundant 3 years, ago e
My grandfather worked as an ostler with the Pears Soap factory delivery horses in the early 1900s. The family lived on site and when my mother and her sister went to St Mary's Charity school at Gumley House, they were called Pears's Stinkers as the all the perfumes must have impregnated their clothes. My mother always recalled how kind the nuns were to her. I have a school class photo of her taken in about 1906.
Born at West Middx in January 1945 and lived in Algar Close off Algar Road. Went to the Blue School and Isleworth Grammar. I do remember the dump outside the school gates plus the smell of pig swill being cooked whilst playing the playground, Mrs Bullock, Mrs Baker and Mrs May were some of my teachers. Mrs Nicholson was the headmistress and Mr Beech was the caretaker.Have many happy memories of playing on the many bomb sites around the town and playing football on the field behind the old Job's Dairy, On Saturday and sometimes in the week, went with my mum to Cox's Butchers where George and Johnny Cox worked the over to Harry Agate the Greengrocer and Chapman's the Bakers. Sorry my mind in overdrive I have so many memories. My links with Isleworth are no more with the passing of my mother, father, gran and grandfather. Live nera Nottingham now near my youngest and our grandchildren.

I was born in Isleworth in 1949 in a nursing home. Which one though?. Think I remember my mother mentioning Spring Grove. Anyone out there remember such a place?

Born in West Mid in 1959, went to St John's infants, Isleworth Town Juniors and Spring Grove Central which became Heathlands. Worked at West Mid in the laboratories, then later on for Hounslow council. Looking for any schoolmates or work colleagues who want a trip down memory lane.
Born 19-10-37 in Spring Grove nursing home. Lived in Cranford. Went to Isleworth Grammar 1950 to 57. Brierly was Head Master. George Greig was marvellous English master-produced excellent school plays. I knew Peter Phipps, Barry Burt,Douglas McVey, Ray Giles, and Roger Carrick who went on to be High Commissioner of Australia.I remember the bomb damage to one corner of the school, and the DOG house next door, now a Crown Court.I played rugby and basketball for the old boys. I have a history of the school written many years ago by Ron Hyam. once Head Boy who became a historian in Cambridge. My own career was motor trade and then Probation Service.
Hi,I was at Smallberry Green and subsequently Syon school leaving in July 1972. I am still friends with Richard Lewin.The head teachers were Scot and Golding.Does anyone know what happened to Martin Blake or John Chambers
Hello, I was hoping someone might be able to help me, my Grandad George Cox owned and ran the Butchers on South Street (4 the Pavement) and my two grandfather's before him. I sadly missed out on all this as he had sold it and retired when I was only 3. If anyone has any memories of the shop or stories I would love to hear them? And it would help me with my family history. My Dad (John Cox) grew up at 9 Worple road and went to Smallberry green in the 60's. Many Thanks Alex
Hi. I was born in Clara Court flats in 1956, apparently osterley. Can you help me to find location. Thanks Keith
My grandfather (who I never met unfortunately) was a schoolmaster at the Old Blue School in Isleworth in 1907-1916 and then again from 1919-1920. I would be very interested to see any photos from that time or to read of any special events at the school back then.
Dewey, William (1932) and Alan(1936)... looking for my long lost cousins .. Carol Mitchell
Just read through some of the messages so intrigued to hear my family name of Priddy mentioned a few times. Especially Janet Gilbert remember you fondly and playing with you guys in Hall Road. Also Julie Hurst you were friends with my sister sue and Margaret. My married name is Melville and I live in Auckland NZ. On a visit home my sister sue and I went to Crowlink to find the camp we went to and then found out that Ken Noakes had written a book on it. Would love to hear from anyone especially Janet and Julie.
To Rofer Ivimy. I lived in Kilmorey Gardens and I can remember being in the Kilmorey Killers and we used to play with the Haliburton Horrors.
I was born in 1946 and went to Worple Road School until leaving to live in Windsor in 1957. I remember playing around the alleys where I lived in St Margarets with friends Malcolm, Robert, Paul and others. Life was good then
Marlborough Park Cottage, near Isleworth This address on a letter of 1825 - any idea where or even better, who lived there then? They were in the artistic circle of the day. thank you
For anyone interested in the Worple Road Schools I have written two books on their history. One is called Working at Worple and covers the Junior School from 1928-1975 and the other is The Early History of Worple Road Infant and Worple Road Mixed Schools 1897-1927. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
We moved to Isleworth in 1965 after which I attended Smallberry Green School. I can't remember many of the teachers but 'Scudder' seams to ring a bell and Mr Evans was French Teacher. Living in Kent now.
More memories of WR: when I joined the school in 1957 I was assigned to St Patrick's (Green) House. Logic suggests that the other houses were St George's (Red), St Andrew's (Blue) and St David's (Yellow) but my memory fails at this point. The headteacher was Miss Groves(?), superseded the following year by Mr Paul. One of the WR teachers was Mrs Greig, wife of George Greig, who taught English at Isleworth Grammar. IGS lay under the approach to Heathrow's northern runway (28R) so lessons were frequently disrupted by the early jets, which were not noted for quietness of operation. I alluded to this problem in an article I wrote celebrating the Boeing 707's fiftieth anniversary (httpsxxxxx). I have a memory of George Greig striding over to the window during an English lesson to shake his fist at an offender flying overhead. (Possible crew response: 'Hey, there's that mad English teacher down there . . . better throttle back a tad . . .')

I was born in 1943 and lived on Yew Tree Walk in Hounslow. (Off Wellington Road South) Went to Grove Road and then to Smallberry Green. Got married, lived near Banbury and then moved to New York City. After 10 years moved to Boston and now live in the Rocky Mountains (Montana) Happy memories of Smallberry Green Mr Farthing, Joe Liddicoat and his hat!! Merry Christmas to everyone
Hi Deirdre, good to hear from you. Sorry I misspelt your name! Clearly I mis-identified Anne Evans - the image is a photo of a photo, a little out of focus. Were you a friend of Anne's? Ken has posted my copy of the photo on the Isleworth Society Guestbook website. An amended version is also accessible at https://steemrok.com/worple1958v3.jpg. You may remember the 'Argonaut' incident referred to below. My wife and I visited NZ in 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed ambience of the country. Plan A was to include a train journey from Greymouth to Christchurch in the itinerary but time constraints meant we had to omit this trip. Has Christchurch recovered from the recent earthquake? For ex-WR pupils, an extract from an article I wrote for an aviation magazine a few years ago can be accessed at https://steemrok.com/argo.pdf
Please get in touch Deidre by email as I have been researching Worple Rd Junior School recently and have written a brief history of the school from 1928-1975. email@example.com

I was interested to see Julien Evans' posting about Worple Road and I would like to discover more of the history of the school since my time there and have contact with any pupils there in 1956-58. I did love my time at Worple Rd Junior School.I am a New Zealander and spent two years at that time in St Margarets on Thames with my family. I have the 1958 photo of the class and can confirm that Anne Evans was absent from school that day and was not in the photo. I live in Christchurch, New Zealand, and am a retired lawyer. We have two sons, one also in Christchurch and the other in Japan. We have 4 grandchildren. Deirdre McKean
I discovered this website while researching Worple Road Junior School, prompted by the recent obituary in The Times of Geoffrey Whitty (google his name for more info). Geoff was one of my best friends at WR, where I was a pupil 1957-8. He went on to Latymer School while I attended Isleworth Grammar and sadly we didn't keep in touch. I have a 1958 photo of Class 8 at WR - 35 pupils and Form Teacher Mr Finney. I can identify roughly half the pupils: Mick French*, Freda Fearn(?), Diedre Lewis, Doug Harris*, Barry Secker, Geoffrey Whitty, Chris Skidmore*, Ian Kavanagh(?), Ian Roberts*, Roberta Staines, Steve(?) Pollard, Brenda Garwood, Anne Evans, Dave(?) Fricker, Peter Bidmead (or Bidgood). *These boys also went on to IGS, where Chris was head boy 1964-5. If the owner permits, I can post this photo on this website. Julien Evans
Hello everyone, I would like to add more information to my immediate family and ancestors. I have always known that my family, granddad, uncle and great granddad ran a blacksmiths at 80 South Street. My dad's side of the family, Sadler, were from Isleworth and Surrey, and his mum's family, Quin, were from Isleworth to the Richmond area. I have struggled to find anything more about them and their lives. I would really like to see some faces for the names I have found and wonder if anyone is still with us so I may be able to have tea and a chat. the time period is mid 1800s through to today and I would love to hear from anyone that can help me fill in the gaps. I lived very near to South Street for many years both with the family and when I got married. My grand mother, Dolly was friends with Grace Chapman, both keen rowers and my granddad, Donald Arthur played for Brentford's B team in 1924 so would love to hear more about that too. If you can help me, I would be delighted, thanks.
My uncle was schoolmaster at small berry school and lived in the schoolhouse. At night during the war my mum and aunts family spent the night in the grounds of the school shelter with about 100 or so knees. Sometimes in the morning we would merge to find the earth banks on the shelter from phosphorus bombs dropped overnight. One not but my uncle was on duty and saw a dogfight n the sky. A parachute opened from one German plane shot down and my uncle and other soldiers rushed off to collect the airman when he landed
I am researching printing at Smallberry Green School in the 1950's or thereabouts when the school produced printed books and magazines made by hand. Please get in touch to give me any stories about your experiences of this. Thank you. James
Reply to Emma Kendall post on 12/07/'18, my mother Eileen (nee Stocker) was born in Kendall Road in 1933 and lived there until 1956 and can remember watching the farriers at the forge making horseshoes. The building still stands and can be seen on google maps street view
Julie Hope (nee Hurst)
I was born in 1952 and lived in Dawes Avenue - had a brother Peter Hurst and sister Ann. Just reading through the emails I recognise many names even though they were posted a few years ago. Lived next door to you Alan Cox and knew you and your family Janet Gilbert - knew all the Priddys - great memories of Isleworth. Have joined The Isleworth Appreciation Society, so interesting.
I was born at West Mid Isleworth in May 1943 and amazingly remember our house 26 Percy gardens being badly damaged by the doodle bug on 62 North Street on 29 Aug 1944 when seven were killed. Our front door was in the kitchen glass was everywhere and the roof wrecked. Bit traumatic I guess thats why I remember it. We lived in one room for ages. My Dad, a WW1 veteran, worked at Firestones and did fire watch. I went to St Marys Primary and Busch Open Air School for a while before Gunnersbury. Was in 4th Isleworth Scouts. Some of the names I remember and wonder how they are are Josie Blackwell, Margaret Lewis, Jennifer Uzzle, Joe Grant, John Griffin, Louis Carnack, Amanda Jakes, Christine Richards (Halliburton Rd). We left Isleworth in 1959 when Percy Gardens was demolished and replaced with flats. Now in Sussex. Does anyone have photos of pre-1959 Percy Gardens or have contact with anybody named above please? Many Thanks Geoff Bridger

I was born in 1945. I went to Isleworth Town School and Smallberry Green Secondary Modern, I left in 1961. In 1967 I migrated to Australia. I have very fond memories of both schools. Particularly men like 'Dibbo' Dixon, Joe Liddicoat, Mr Ellis and others. I have often wondered what happened to my school contempories.
Hi I was born in West Mid Hospital in 1944 and grew up on the Worton Estate (9 Howard Rd). I married in 1964. We lived for a few years in Teddington and then moved to Portmouth. My schools were St Johns, Isleworth Town, Smallberry Green and Twickenham Tech. I have very fond memories of growing up on Worton Estate and the surrounding area, Redlees, Isleworth baths, the Thames, Richmond, Hounslow. Sadly two of the people from my past that I would liked to have got in touch with have died. However I still have the memories.

Like many of your guests I was born 22/07/40 at West Mid attended Isleworth Town and Isleworth Grammar, sang in the All saints choirs first in the temporary church in South street and then down by the river when the church was rebuilt inside the old shell. I well remember the bombing, I lived at 18 Mandeville Rd, spent nights in the garden ARS, one night however there was no siren but all my back windows were blown in and I was under glass in my bed. We had a small neighborhood farm at the top of the road and kept our own chickens with an allotment in St Johns park to grow veg, my fahter was in a reserved occupation at Firestones making tyres, the nights spent in the home guard at Isleworth Half Lock, he was only once injured with shrapnel in his leg. Most supplies were supplied by horse and cart or hand cart. Milk from Jobs in South street. Percy House the old workhouse house many elderly widows and Gummley House would feed the many tramps with soup and bread, Italian POW worked in th
Reply to Roy Marshall' post of 13th October 2014. I don't know if anyone replied to your query, but I think the incident you're talking about was reported in the Middlesex Chronicle on 7th December 1940. Reporting restrictions meant that actual place-names were not given but the timing and the fact that it was a maternity unit that was hit make it fairly likely. If you can get access to FindMyPast, the Newspaper search brings up a digitised page. Alternatively, Hounslow Local Studies (now based at Feltham Library) hold the microfilms for the Middlesex Chronicle
I was born in West Middlesex Hospital in 1942. My father, Fred Wetzel, born in 1901 in Battersea, lived in Worple Road, Isleworth before the First World War until 1918 when he joined the Middlesex Regiment. He attended Worple Road school. He had several brothers and sisters. His half-sister Dolly Wetzel was born in the house in 1915 owned by Goddards of Brentford, and continued to live there until she died in 1998. His half-brother Stanley was killed in WW2 aged 25 when his ship HMS Hermione was sunk in the Med on 16th June 1942 by a German U-Boat sailing between Alexandra, Egypt and Malta. After 6 years in the Army and service in India, Iraq and Afghanistan (the NorthWest frontier) Fred Wetzel became a bus conductor at Twickenham and Hounslow bus garages and his brother Chris worked at Hanwell bus garage. Fred was a supporter of the Commonwealth Land Party which supported annual Land Value Taxation - a cause he advocated until his death in 1982. Anyone remember Stanley Smith's in Worp

Colin G Knight
Raymond Lovegrove. From Colin Knight.++61754864086 Queensland Australia.I have been looking for you fo 20 yrs. You were in my class at Smallberry Green. I found you on another website but it closed. Went through Kidds Mill in 1939 just before they pulled it down. Watch the bombing of old Isleworth though the glass of our front door as we were all sleeping in the hallway because of the German air raid. You could see massive sheets of flame as the bombs went off. The next morning we went to look at the damage, what a mess. All that was left of old Isleworth shops was the pub where the buses turned around instead of going to Hounslow and the Fish shop opposite the Town Hall. The Flying Bomb that fell in South Street, where they built the Prefabs stopped right over our house, turned and glided down to South street. I remember looking at the damage as the houses that were not flattened had the back walls removed, they looked like a childs dolls house with everything in place, beds clothes

I am currently researching the details of this event but am finding sources elusive! Has anyone any ideas? A contact name or address would be useful. I later went to Isleworth Town and Isleworth Grammar School before leaving the area to go to College.

Actually the images are slightly different. Amendment too - my father joined the Australian Flying Corps in 1920 and not 1919
I was looking at your site as I have Brooks and Haylock ancestry from Hounslow, Brentford and Isleworth - I came across the Vickers Vimy at Hounslow Heath in 1919 - I have an identical image in my father's collection - he was in the Air Corp by 1919 and the RAAF when it formed. He must have know someone on that flight and the print that I have is in good condition
My mother, Pamela (nee Ramsay) was born in Isleworth in 1929. She lived with her parents Tom and Daisy in Aylett Road and attended Spring Grove School.

Dear isleworth society i am an Artist at Redlees Studios in Redlees park and was wondering if there is any info on the stable block i work in even on the house many thanks steve
Support the development of the community. A handful of run down shope does not consitute decent shops. I can never do a useful shop in south street and it would also be great to have a free cash machine. Its about time the people of this society looked forward instead of blocking everything. Ive had to live for 10 years whilst people objected to improving a delapidated pub. Enter a new centry please and allow the high street to change and develop for the needs of local people.
I was born in West Mid 29th Jan 1945 and I spent my entire school years at St. Mary's R.C. I live a long way away now but Isleworth is home still even though none of my family live there still. I used to attend the Youth Club Dances at St. Bridgets. Look forward to reading comments on Isleworth.
