Gainsford Crescent took it's name from the Gainsford family. George Gainsford was a curate at St Mary's and owned property at Walsworth. He felt that the new areas of the town which had grown up because of the railway needed churches of their own, and was responsible for the erection of the Holy Saviour in 1865 abd St Faith's in 1894. HE served as vicar in the parish from 1865 to 191, followed by his son George Bernard Gainsford. The Rosehill Estate was completed in 1963. The land previously had been owned by R. Harkness and Company the prize winning rose breeders and growers.

The nearest primary school is Highover JMI which has just doubled it's intake and is rated as "Good" by OFSTED. It is a really good school and they believe in the importance of developing a strong partnership between home and school. The secondary schools in the town are The Priory, Hitchin Girls' and Hitchin Boys'. All are Good or Outstanding.
