Orphanage

by Dawn Pretorius 27 March 2012

Hi, I’m trying to trace a relative who may have been a resident at the orphanage that is now the hospital. I wondered where the records from the orphanage would have been stored once the changeover took place and how one can gain access to them. The child was placed there around 1908 and her name real name was Beatrice May Williams but was changed by the orphanage to Kate Selby. If anyone has any information or possibly had a relative that was there at the same time, it would be much appreciated! Many thanks,
