A Memory of Battersea

As a boy in the 1950s I went to Christchurch Primary School in Este Road. I remember vividly going to church in a hall in the old church grounds while the new church was being built. The old church (shown in this photo) was destroyed during the war. I even remember nagging my mother to buy a brick with my name on it as a donation for the new building.
I just wish I could remember the Vicar's name at that time so if anybody can remember him or any of his staff at the time let me know.

Miss Brookes was the deaconess at Christ Church, She came to the school to give us scripture lessons. When we went into Mrs.Reads class we had Mr.Gordon. I remember they were both lovely people.
