Jay Mason added (December 2011): "... Looks Like that is outside what is now Mrs. Townsend's Classroom. A lot of things have changed now. Mr. Simon Lusted is the current headteacher there now".
Huw Davies added (July 2013): "... my grandmother was from Lydbrook (Annie Simmonds....nicknamed Nance) I think she was born around 1890/92 her family moved to Aberdare in South Wales whilst she was growing up, but would anyone know if her parents had any relatives who may still have family in the Lydbrook area?. Her dad's name was William Edward Simmonds. I think she may have had a sister called Harriet or Hattie. I also think that some other relatives may have moved to the Abertillery/Six Bells area of Wales".
Amanda Jones added: "... My Grandfather Christopher Collett was born in Lydrook in 1905 and so I am thinking that he could be on this old school photo c 1912. I do not recognise him and hope someone may know more information? Please contact me on owenandamandajonesATtiscaliDOTcoDOTuk if you have".
