I am trying to any info for Wiliam Henry Wilkinson 1842-1899. I have searched BDM census and have come up with 2 possibilities one(the one I believe to be correct has no info anywhere only that he went to Bluecoats school where the cathedral is. I have tried searching for any info on BlueCoats schools but cannot find anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thankyou
You can find info on Wikipedia about the type of schools they were (Charity Schools-students wore blue uniforms).
As for more detailed info I think you have to obtain copies from the National Archives.

William Henry was my great grandfather. It took me some time to find out the info that I've now just come across on this Forum. It's good to have the info I found confirmed.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could share any info you have found, I would gladly do likewise.
