Ireland House, East Street
Henry Naylor had arrived in Ashburton in 1918, moving from Steyning Grammar School in West Sussex. Interestingly, although the memories of many past pupils are gathered together in 'Schooldays Remembered - Recollections of Steyning Grammar School' including several from the periods when he taught there, no-one mentions him.
He was accompanied by his wife Edith and a young and increasing family: his third child Margaret had only been born in April of that year (GRO certificate). He had moved from Steyning to take up the position of headmaster of the Grammar School - his first headship.
