Here is another postcard from Ann Hayes of Ruthin – an interesting glimpse of Elwy Hall, Grange Road, Rhyl, in days gone by when it was a school. There are two boys (front centre) otherwise all the figures are female. A girls’ school then, I suppose. Does anyone have further information? Please send email to:

At present Elwy Hall is a function and banqueting venue with masonic connections, hosting large and small corporate and private events, weddings, conferences and parties, tel (01745) 334008.


SUN 28th FEB UPDATE: Christine Whaite has been in touch to say that one of her distant relatives, Lily Florence Whaite, was a pupil and boarder at Elwy Hall School. Lily was the daughter of artist Henry Clarence Whaite who was born in Manchester and later lived in the Conwy valley. Christine says, ‘I believe you are right about the school being for girls. The boys on the 1891 census are listed as servants.’
