My husband's grandfather Andrew (Jack) Gardiner was placed in the Blackburn Children's Home in the 1890s not long after it was built. Their father David placed them there after his wife died and paid ~ 20 shillings a week. Andrew's older brother, Wallace, was 4 or 5 when he agreed in 1895 to abstain from alcohol via the Band of Hope. We have the certificate. Wallace was very proud of his pledge, and he never touched a drop of alcohol in his life. He died in 1967 at age 76. Andrew was 17 when he left the orphanage and moved to Canada. If there is any information on these two brothers at the orphanage, we would be very pleased to know or receive links. k11kruse@att.net

I was put in Rhyl homes in 1969 age 8yrs old. My mum died when I was just 6yr 1 month old. I was there for 2 weeks of terror before being sent on to Pittsburgh house light wood meir s-o-t. We had the pleasure of cold food, cold baths and if we were naughty in anyway we got put in the coal cellar where it was dark cold dirty with rats. There was a big wooden shed/room on the grounds and we went in there for lessons. We were also walked in a big line to church I know it was off Russell rd Rhyl first on the left building with lots of metal fire escapes. But what Rd it was cornered with I can’t remember it was around tarleton st/ Chester st/ st Asaph st. Our bedroom was on the ground floor and if you looked out the window you could see the fire escapes and the boys dorm on the second floor. Bad memories that won’t go

Nellie his older sister had her records show her name as Nellie Cooke. I am anxious to find more details on my grandfather as there is some mystery in the family. I am struggling to find copies of birth certificates for him or his siblings. Maybe his surname wasn’t even Cooke. His mother was Alexandra Dixon.

The Grange, I remember the beatings and abuse, but no names of staff.
Bettman Close, This was run by Pat and George Hogg, Son Peter ( main abuser )
Brandon Place, Run by the Bavister's she was main abuser.
I remember from Bettman Close, a Karen and Yvette, two young girls who shared a room with me and would of been about 5-6 at the time in around 1967 ish.
I don't have any good memories of being in care.
Is there anyone out there that was in any of these homes same time as myself ?
