This category groups those men who attended North Grove House School – a private preparatory school for boys wishing to apply for entrance to the Royal Navy through competitive examinations for the training ship H.M.S. Britannia.

It was located in Southsea and may have, at times, been referred to as Bell & Johnson's or Bell & Burrowes.

In 1889, it was advertising that "Mr. Alenson receives boys from the age of eight for preparation for naval cadetships, for the army and for general education."[1]
