Music School or Conservatory Krausse Bedford Street

Dear Sir or Madam,
recently my mother discovered letters which were written by her grandmother to her family in Gera, Germany during her one year stay in Liverpool in 1892/93. She visited her uncle and aunt by the name of Krausse (Krause?) who lived in Bedford Street. He ran a music school or conservatory which must have had a certain size as he employed several teachers. Is there anything still known about that school? Apparently, the Krausses left to go back to Germany around 1901.
I would be very pleased to receive some information if there is any as I am going to visit Liverpool with my mother in the beginning of May. 
Thank you very much for your support!
With best regards,
Andreas Blochel

  1. Dear Andreas,

    the only reference to Bedford Street, Liverpool I can locate are Bedford Street South and Bedford Street North, the latter is in the Liverpool University campus area. I also cannot source any information regarding a school in these streets. However if you know the name of the school I can ask our members for any information they may have on the establishment.

    Kindest regards
