Appraisal Information

Mae'r holl gofnodiadau sy'n cydymffurfio â pholisi casglu Swyddfa Gofnodi Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn wedi eu cadw /All records which meet the collection policy of the Anglesey Archives have been retained.

Custodial History

The items have been collected by ex-pupils of Beaumaris Grammar School and displayed in a room above the Memorail Hall now The David Hughes Centre, the only remaining building from the original Grammar School. The Old Bimarensian's wanted the items to be displayed as a 'museum' to the school. Temperatures and humidity in the building are not ideal for such storage so original items have been deposited at Anglesey archives. Duplicate and copy items remain in the old school.
