Hi Eddy,

My sister Susan spotted this photograph and after a lengthy conversation with my brother Kevin I think we can add more names to the ones supplied by Caroline Morris.

BACK ROW.  Doris Morphet (dinner lady) Kevin Smith (my brother) Edwin Winder, Jeffrey Richardson, Anne Dobinson, Helen Wilson, Florrie Beck (cook) Angela Law, Eileen Winder, Jennifer Hunter, Mrs Dent (Head)

SECOND ROW.  We are not 100% but think this is John Dent (Mrs Dent's son who attend the school before going on to Heversham) Maureen Richardson, Brenda Greenhow, Lynne Smith (my sister) Christine Dent, again not 100% but think it is Alan Steadman.

THIRD ROW.  Sandra Lancaster, Linda Greenhow, Janet Wilson, Alan Law, Christine Hunter, Anne Richardson.

FRONT ROW.  Martin Dent, Susan Smith (my sister) and Eddy Wilson.

I am the youngest of the Smiths and had not yet started school. Kevin tells me he thinks this photograph is taken in 1960 as this was his last year at primary school. We lived in Ravenstonedale from the 1950's to 1973 and all attended the primary school and Kirkby Stephen Grammar School and have many happy memories of our time in the village. We remember the Wilson family and Kevin was in the same class as Helen.

Hope this is helpful.
