Behind the Scenes: Heritage and Education – The National School Teachers of 1905

Throughout Heritage Week we have been focusing on an aspect of our collection which applies to this year’s theme of ‘Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage’.

Today we are pleased to release the full list of National School teachers serving on 31st March 1905. This list acts as a kind of teacher’s census as the information was gathered by the National Education Office on a certain date to try and record details of teacher’s ages, length of service, location of school and their role in it, and their place of training if provided. This list compiling all active teachers at a certain date is the only one we hold and so can be particularly useful in the first step to identifying a teacher relative.

The list is arranged in alphabetical order by surname and can be viewed by PDF here.
