Reg and Flora Godfrey
Reg Godfrey was the Red House School chauffeur, handyman and woodwork teacher from 1931. In 1938 he married Flora Cross and they moved into Moat Cottage (The Cottage as it was called then). There is a reference to the marriage in the school magazine dated April 1938:

On April 16th, Godfrey was married at St. Stephen's Church, Kirkstall. To him and Mrs Godfrey congratulations and good wishes and a very warm welcome as they come to make their home at Red House.

Unfortunately Flora found life at Red House a bit too quiet, wives of school employees were not expected to be involved in school life, and they soon moved on.
