Information from the 1911 census
This is a somewhat tentative identification – the best fit of the data available. The 1911 census includes an entry for the Andrews family at 30 Haselrigge Road, Clapham. Charles Thomas Andrews, 63, was a schoolkeeper from Shaftesbury, Dorset. His wife Emma Andrews, 59, was from Rendlesham, Suffolk. They lived in 6 rooms with their 21-year-old daughter Gracie, who was a school cleaner, born in Chelsea. The couple had had 13 children, 6 of whom had died.
On the night of the census, their son, Claude Andrews, 17, a clerk for a builder’s merchant, was visiting, along with a daughter, Chelsea-born Maud Price, a widow at 23 and working as a schoolkeeper, and her two-year-old son George Price, who was born in Brixton.
Haselrigge School closed in 2001.
