Hove Training Home for Girls

by Janet Vidler 13 July

Hi, I’m researching my daughters paternal side of the family tree and have found a relative at the above ‘certified school’ in the 1911 census (41, Clarendon Villas, Hove) and I was wondering if there was any information anywhere as to what sort of school it was. The census says training for domestic service, the family grapevine/information implies it was a mother and baby home which led to training for service – just wanted to check so I would know if I was searching for a birth around this time too!
