Does anyone remember being in a Convalescent Home that was in Grange Over Sands in the 1960's. I was sent from Liverpool after having my tonsils out for 2-3 weeks and my brother was ill. It was very close to a beach and we used to go on a weekend and sit next to a wall. I recall it was a large house like building and had high wire fencing around at the back, and a wall at the front. I also recall meeting up with two nurses who took me on a visit to Mill Rd Hospital after I came home. Does anyone have any recollection of any this to help me try to find out where it was??? Many thanks

I wonder if anyone out there can help me...I’m trying to find information about Braemar former children’s convalescence home in De Le Ware Road, Bexhill on Sea circa 1947/1948. All I know is that it was run by a Miss Mumphie (may not be correct spelling). My mother, Irene Hazel Chesnick, as she was called then, was institutionalised there for a three month period during the above years. She suffered a lot of mental and physical abuse during her time there and lived with the scars for the rest of her life (she died 10years ago aged 64). She never found out the circumstances in which she was sent there, despite trying for many years. I am now doing some research about her life and would dearly love to be able to try to piece the fragments together on her behalf. My mother was a tortured soul who never found peace - maybe in some small way I could help to finally lay her spirit to rest with whatever information might be out there.
If by some coincidence you remember Braemar, or attended, or by some miracle remember my mother, please contact me on claudiaberman@outlook.com.
Thank you.

Replying to Yvonne Dawkins:

I'm afraid I can't help too much, except to say that my late father also lived in a children's home in Hastings in the 50s/60s. He described it as being on a hill, or perhaps even up in the cliffs, and that the carers were known as 'auntie' and 'uncle'. He also remembered having his hair cut (although being a boy, I think it was probably less upsetting for him!) and being taken out to buy new shoes and get ice cream. If you or anyone knows more about this place, then I would love to hear/exchange information!
With regard to the comment by Christopher Baker about the Penylan orphanage his mother mentioned

To Hev Dyson: I believe GREEN LODGE is now TISLEY HOUSE CARE HOME, 14 Clarence Road, Weston Super Mare
I was in SEVERAL Children’s homes of BRENT SOCIAL SERVICES Middlesex NW London during the mid 1970’s, I’m 47 now and sometimes feel guilty at the increasing reminiscing that I do but have a very strong desire to find out more about my childhood.

One of the children’s homes I was in was 80 Wembley Park drive- Aunty Freda was the main lady and I was looked after so well. She was so kind

Also 97 Woodcock hill Kenton Harrow with my brother Patrick.

I also stayed at Warleigh Manor Bathford (near bath) which was a boarding school run by Les Alderman who I remember as a lovely man hellbent on helping youngsters recover from disadvantaged childhoods.

Live laugh cry smile love

I wish somehow I could find anyone who was in any of these or knew any info that might help me piece together those early years of my life.
Life can be cruel and harsh sometimes but beautiful too

I know I’m not alone in yearning to find my past and I wish love and peace to any now grown ups who went or children who that still go through the care system today.

I have details of a "Private Home for Children" in Pierremont Ave, Broadstairs. It was run by a lady called Blanche Rose Penley between 1909 and 1919. It was a 10 room building with about six children, at the time of the 1911 census, 2 were males and 4 were females. Two of the children gave their birth place as Melbourne, Australia and Bombay, India.

Grateful if anyone, who knows of this place and has further details, could make contact with me as I am writing a feature and I would really welcome some help. Thank you

Hi, My name is Christina and I have been working on finding where my family went in 1910. Orville Lewis Barnett would have been 9 years old and his brother Harold would have been about 4 years old. I am trying to find documents showing where they were taken in 1910. I found a newspaper clipping stating they were taken to the Knightsville Orphans Home/ Clay County Orphans Home in Indiana. Does anyone know where I can find this information? Thanks for any help.
