Personal Record Cards (1950s - 1970s)

St Anthony's, Croydon


Personal Record Cards is an archival series from St Anthony's Croydon. The records date from around the 1950s to the 1970s, and relate to children who were not adopted and young children under the age of three years who were placed in long or short term care. The cards include information about the child, such as name, date of birth, parents' names together with information as to why the child was being placed in care.


Access Conditions

Physical access to the original records is not possible due to their fragility and the need to protect the privacy of others mentioned in the records.
