Burwood Maternity Home


Burwood Maternity Home, run by the Salvation Army, was opened in a house called Clythe at Lucas Road Burwood in October 1898, having moved from Newtown. It provided accommodation for homeless girls and unmarried mothers and also operated as a maternity home. It moved to Marrickville in 1910.

According to Connecting Kin (1998), this Home may earlier have been at Newtown and its records are related to those of Newtown Maternity and Rescue Home.
