Gallimore, George Physick Kingsley

Rosebank High School Principal

George Physick Kingsley Gallimore was for many years  principal of Rosebank High School in Elwick Road and lived in an apartment in Ambleside Manor which was also used as the senior department of the school. He lived with his sister. His preferred Christian name was Kingsley which had possibly been his mother's  or aunt's maiden name. 

He was originally called George Gallimore Physick and on 13th March 1929, with an address of Dane Croft, Grosvenor Gardens Newcastle under Lyme Staffordshire and an occupation as schoolmaster, he changed his name by deed poll to George Physick Kingsley Gallimore. This was thereafter the name by which he was known. The reason for this change is unclear.

Gallimore was a J.P. and also involved in local politics, being Mayor of Hartlepool in 1969.

He was possibly from the Stoke on Trent area originally.
