My two sisters and I were at a children’s home called Roxburgh House in Stroud Gloucestershire from September 1950.
The Home has since been pulled down and I believe a Sports Hall is now on the site.
I remember a Nurse Danby, a small woman who wore a surgical boot for her limp.
Can anyone else remember Roxburgh House I wonder?

My father and his two sisters were sent to separate orphanages around 1917 in the Darlington area which I believe were either Church of England or possibly Quaker - he could quote huge chunks of the Bible that he learnt while there. Does anyone know of orphanages in that area or advice on how I can find where they were sent. I'm hoping for some insight when the 1921 census is released. Thanks.

My name is Colin walker born in 1958 in Birmingham. I,M second youngest out of 5 only 3 of us were mixed race and 2 of English . My first time in a home was erdington cottage homes in 1959 my mother was single she did everything to bring us all up polite and caring . Although the state treated her like a leper . After having me she became really ill and us 4 children were removed from our home in b t b at the top of Irving street. We were taken to erdington cottage home. This was my first visit and I was only six months old so I do not remember a lot of this visit. But throughout the next 12 years I had 6 visits to erdington cottage aswell as below

Foster care families a few .

This has not made me bitter as my moms biggest problems were her parents . They were of Irish descent and they told her if she kept her brown children she is dismissed from there family. They never seen there 3 brown skinned children . But my aunts would collect my white brother and sister and take them to see there grandparent occasionally. They refused to help my mom between 1954 until there death in 1981. I have lost contact with my white sister and brother since 2014 as they started to act similar to there grandparents. My brown skinned brother and sister have both passed away . My daughter has grown up in a totally loved and different environment to mine in the 1950s and 60s.
Was there an orphanage in Rhyl in 1943

This was the Belgrave Recovery Home in West Grove, Hersham (Walton on Thames), affiliated to the Belgrave Children’s Hospital in London.
I am looking for any information or knowledge of my grandma and a few of her siblings growing up in a catholic convent run by nuns. She was born 1935. Her mother passed in 1940 of TB and her father already passed in 1939. I heard they were sent to a scatter home in Formby area? Someone in the family said Freshfields? Her brother was separated from them with boys. My grandma and her 3 sisters stayed together for some time in the convent until some of them were old enough to leave, finally when My grandma was 16 when she left. We found records for her brother from Father Hudson's.
One story my grandma told me was : on Christmas morning the girls and boys all lined up across from each other with a Christmas tree in the middle and each girl one by one would go get a doll or something and the boys would go get a ball and they were allowed to play with it but had to put it back after for the children next year. She remembers learning and becoming fluent in saying the prayer in Latin. Someone said maybe St Joseph's? I was told they were in the Southport and Liverpool area, but then another family recalls moving to a home in Preston?
Anything helps?
Homes in around that area from 1940-1950?
How do we find records or photos or admissions into these homes?
Does anyone around that time recall a Priscilla (Phyliss) Young or Kathleen Young or Alice/Elizabeth Young.
