Bryncoch Cottage Homes


These were a very small institution. Opened in 1877/78 in Neath, Glamorgan, these cottage homes comprised perhaps just three two-storey cottages giving a maximum capacity of less than 60 children.


According to surviving registers from the cottage homes, we know that they were still functioning until at least 1955.




Records kept about the cottage homes can be found here. Many of these records are 'closed' ie. not available to view by the general public.


To see personal records, apply in the first instance to Neath Port Talbot Social Services Children and Young People ServicesWe're doing some digging to see if we can get contact details for this.
