I am trying to find the orphanage where my sister Catherine Rylance and I were admitted to in 1948 or 1949. Catherine Rylance DOB is 14/ 01/1945 and my DOB is 31/01/1947. I believe we were in the orphanage for about 6 months however none of my relations have confirmed solid information about the name of the orphanage or how long we were there for. We have only been told we were put in an orphanage after our parents separated after the end of WW2. I think the orphanage may have been in or around the Dorset area or Clacton on Sea.
It would be very much appreciated if you could please assist how I can locate the orphanage.
Kind regards
Carol Rylance

I have so many memories of the homes, particularly "Momma Judge", Mrs Judge and her Daughter who had Down's. There's much confusion and I'm unable to put the Jigsaw together. I really does feel like there are pieces missing. I can remember going to a "Panto" arranged by the Local Fire Department, but I couldn't tell you what the Panto was.
I'd like to contact anyone who was there, at all, but especially those who were there between 1974 and 1980. Johnnie.
Both of my grandparents were in orphanages as children. I have a bible which was given to my grandmother and on the front page it says Stockwell Orphanage. It was a sturgeon home and my grandmother was placed there around 1900 to 1903 when her parents died and her grandmother became to infirm to care for her and her brother. Would there still be records and how can I access them? Their names were Annie Francis Abbott and her brother was Frederick Charles Abbott.

Hello. I spent many years in Sir Josiah Mason's Orphanage in Erdington, Birmingham prior to being removed and placed in the National Children's Home. I would very much like to hear from Violet Green, Anne Weeks, Nadine Higginbottom (and her sister) and anyone else who may remember me in the orphanage. I have vivid memories of my years in the orphanage and clearly remember the cold dormitories, ablutions, huge dining room, long corridors, sick bay, staff rooms, church and swimming pool. In fact I remember the complete outlay of the inside of the orphanage and reminisce about it often. I spent about 7 years incarcerated in there. There were 4 Houses within the orphanage....Johnson, Edward, Jevons and Tangy and I was in Jevons House - (sorry if I haven't spelt them correctly but I can't remember accurate spelling). I hope there's someone out there that remembers me....I wore spectacles because of a convergent squint and had to constantly listen to taunts from my peers. I eagerly await a communication from someone who shared my life in the orphanage. Kind Regards, valerie

Kathleen Puskunigas/Phillips was placed in an orphanage ran by the Nuns of Nazareth in or around Liverpool in 1937. I am guessing it is Crosby. If anyone has any information it would be most helpful.
Thank fully, I was relocated from private Foster care @ 39, St. Georges Cresent, Aycliffe, Dover Kent to Eastry Childrens Home, Nr. Sandwich @ age 8.

Although the Eastry School Headmaster - Mr. 'F' was wicked and cruel to us Boys 'from up the Hill' the Childrens home / Orphanage was a blessing. Mrs Betty Harris (RIP) was like a Mother to us. jwb
