The Registers in this Series cover the admissions and discharges from the Margaret Harris Hospital from January 1962 through to June 1982. The records give the child's name, and in most cases the name of the attending doctor as well as a diagnosis. It is possible to determine the length of stay from the admission and discharge dates. The Registers consist of three foolscap books with forty entries per page and a total of 369 pages. The Margaret Harris Hospital was situated within the grounds of the Burnside Homes from 1917 until 1938, when it was moved and refurbished.
All requests for access to any of these records must be finally authorised by the Burnside Chief Executive Officer, or delegated Senior Manager.
