Lerpoolians who have gone AWOL

Have you kept in touch with an alum who isn't yet a member of The Lerpoolians? Here's your chance to help in the detective work.

Inspired by a question raised by David Pitts (Selwyn, 1950), The Admins at The Lerpoolians agreed to launch a "Where are they now?" column on our website.

Today, if you want to connect with a family member or a friend, you can email, instant message, or call them. Some devices and mobile apps include a feature that shows, based on GPS coordinates, where your friends are so that you know their exact location. But for our predecessors, when a person travelled, moved, or emigrated, the wait to hear word from them could take months or even years. If something tragic happened, no one may be any the wiser.

To kickstart this idea, David supplies a list of names, all from Selwyn's and spread from VIth form down to 3B. These alums would be, assuming they all undertook A-Levels between approximately 1951 and 1957, at least 80 years old now.

Missing Selwynites
Ison, R.J Robertson, E.A Milton, J
Dunn, P.G Meredith, G.D Darlington, R.D.
Robinson, J.S Cannell, D.F Hughes, D.V
Willett, D or R.D. German, M.J Firth, P.E
Tunnington, E.B. Street, D.F Babbs, R.C
Dale, K.J    

 

But what of our younger alums? What about those who left anytime between the 1960s and the 2010s?

 

Here we supply a list of names, taken randomly from The Lerpoolians records, for whom we have but a name and no other details. Can you help?

  • Do you know where they live?
  • Are they still alive? If not, then let us know and we can add their names to our Lerpoolians Farewell page on the website.
  • Do you have any contact details?
  • What did they do after leaving Liverpool College? Did they go into Higher Education or straight into a job?
  • Perhaps they need help or would like to find their old friends but don't know about The Lerpoolians.

All information, no matter how sketchy will help. If you know of an alum who isn't registered on the site (see Network tab to search) then we'd love you to encourage them to join us, or you can send us their details and we will send them an invitation.

 

Please send us details of those you cannot find amongst our members; you don't have to confine yourself to the list we mention above. You can email us at contact@thelerpoolians.org.uk or clcik "reply to this email

 

You can send alums you are in contact with an invitation by using the Send Invitation  tool on the website.
