The Society for Providing Services for Neglected or Needy Children holds some records relating to Our Children's Home (also known as Ardill House). Previously, these records were in the custody of Integricare.
Please contact the Society for Providing Services for Neglected or Needy Children. Access to records is provided according to the Society's Records Policy (August 2020).
There is a register containing details about children admitted to and discharged from the Home (dates unknown), and a minute book (dates unknown). The minute book contains notes from monthly meetings of the committee that ran the Home, which sometimes include details about individual children. There are also some photographs in the collection.
In 2020, the Society for Providing Services for Neglected or Needy Children took custody of this collection of records. Previously, it was held by Integricare, who are tenants on the previous site of Our Children's Home (Ardill House).
