View Full Version : orphanages
looking for any info on orphanages in and around the radcliffe area from 1904 to about 1910 thanks. galty
Hi, do you have the name of the orphanage? If so you could try institutions.org.uk or you could write to Manchester social services or Bury Social services with the date of birth, name of parents, siblings etc and your reason for your research and you should get a reply. If this doesn't help let me know as I live near Radcliffe and could visit the library to see if they have any info on the local orphanages. I don't know if you live in the area but it's not a huge place, so Ican't imagine there being very many.

There was an orphanage fairly near to Radcliffe, at Edgworth, run by the National Children's Home. Children from all over the country were sent there. A lot of them finally settled in the Bury and Radcliffe area.

Hi Lancashire Lass,
Unfortunately Galty is no longer a member of the forum so is unlikely to see your reply.
