Bexley Boys' Home
The Inmates' Register from Bexley Boys' Home comprises one volume. For each boy admitted to the Home, the register records the following: date of admission; name in full; date and place of birth; religion; reason for admission; name and address of parent or guardian; if handed over by the State; discharge date; condition of health; where sent (upon discharge); nature of employment and weekly wages if sent to a job; and name and address of future guardian.
Former residents and clients can access information about themselves after providing proof of identity. Access to information may be given to a third party providing they have written permission from the person to whom the information relates, can prove a connection with that person, or show evidence that the person is deceased. All other applications for access will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Access to information about adoptions is subject to the provisions of the NSW Adoption Act 2000.
