Church of England Deaconess Ministries

Anglican and Records Holder

Anglican Deaconess Ministries Ltd was founded in 1891 as the Church of England Deaconess Ministries. Its name changed in the 1980s. Its record collection is limited but it does hold annual reports and some records of children's homes operated by the Deaconesses, including some photographs.


Records include:

  • Deaconess Children's Home and Domestic Training School annual reports and group photographs (1894-1935)
  • Pallister Girls Home and Lisgar Trust/Pallister House annual reports and group photographs (1936-1976)
  • Pallister Young People's Unit and Special School group photographs (1977-1981)

While Anglican Deaconess Ministries operated Lisgar Training School for Domestic Servants and Lisgar Hostel, it does not hold any records or photographs of these homes.
