St Joseph's Home for Children, Croydon
The Admission Registers from St Joseph's Home for Children, Croydon comprise four volumes, that record: child's name, date and place of birth; date received and date discharged; to whom discharged; religion; and parents' names, addresses and occupations.
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.
These records were transferred to CatholicCare Adoption Services Bankstown in April 2013. All written and telephone requests for access should be made to CatholicCare Adoption Services.
