The Record of Old Westminsters

The Record of Old Westminsters has been an invaluable resource for members of the school community, academics and family historians alike.  The range of Old Westminsters’ accomplishments and expertise is reflected in its pages, and the changing social patterns it reveals, also make it a fascinating publication in its own right.


The series was begun in the 1920s when G.F. Russell Barker (OW) undertook to compile a list of all the pupils who have ever been educated at the school, and to gather information about their lives and achievements. The list was nearing completion in 1927, when Barker died and Alan H. Stenning (OW) picked up where Barker had left off. The Record of Old Westminsters, which was finally published as two volumes in 1928, includes all former pupils “from the earliest times” to 1927. 

Volume III, which was compiled by J.B. Whitmore, G.R.Y. Radcliffe and D.C. Simpson (all OWW), brought the list as far as 1960. Volume IV was produced by F.E. Pagan and his son, H.E. Pagan (both OWW), bringing The Record forward to 1989. 

In Play 2014 work began on Volume V, led by an Editorial Committee and supported by The Elizabethan Club and the Westminster School Society.  The completed text includes nearly 10,000 biographical entries, covering pupils educated at the school from Play 1937 to those who had left the school in Election 2015.
Our deepest thanks to Mr. Tony Willoughby (LL 1959 - 1962), Mrs Elizabeth Wells and all those who worked tirelessly to produce Volume V.
