R.C. Boarding Schools, Hereford, early 20th Century.
During the late 1900's or early 1920's, my mother (born 1908), was a pupil at two R.C. boarding schools, run by nuns, in "Hereford". As she said Hereford, we think that she meant Hereford itself, rather than Herefordshire. Please does anyone "out there" have any information on any such schools? Any information at all will be most welcome.
