The guide Connecting Kin (1998) contains this description of the Substitute Care (Institutional 'B') Files:
'These files represent a random ten per cent sample and relate to children who were born in 1961 or 1962 and have been discharged from care.'
From the information available, it would seem that these files were kept by government departments dating back to around 1936, but that files have been destroyed and only a sample retained.
We do not currently have any records linked to this organisation, but records may exist. The Find & Connect Support Service can help people who lived in orphanages and children's institutions look for their records.
We do not currently have any photographs linked to this entry. If you know of any additional photographs, please contact us.
