There is conflicting opinion as to who was Hardy's Tripos coach. The Wikipedia page on Hardy claims it was R. A. Herman, a claim that appears to be backed up by Leonard Roth in his article "Old Tripos days" that appeared in the Monthly in 1971 (78, pp. 223-236). However, Titchmarsh claims that he was first coached by R. R. Webb, and later by A. E. H. Love (Obituary in the first volume of Hardy's Collected Papers). As Titchmarsh was one of Hardy's students, I would take his word as final. Do I have this right? Does anyone have knowledge of who the real coach was?
