Lutanda Children's Home
The Client Files from Lutanda Children's Home (1930-1984?) are arranged alphabetically by name and include admission and medical information for each person, along with case files documenting the person's stay in Lutanda. The records held by Lutanda are incomplete, and some of the gaps in the records can be attributed to the fact that many files are being held by the Crown Solicitor's Office.
Former residents of Lutanda are entitled to access their own records. Anyone wishing to access information about another person may only do so with the written permission of that person. In the case where a person wishes to access information about a person who is deceased, they will need to prove their relationship to that person (i.e. birth certificate, marriage certificate, etc.).
