The Orphanages' Committee was the body formed to replace The Committee (1868-1888) to govern Anglican orphanages and children's homes in Perth. The Orphanages' Committee was replaced by the Anglican Orphanages Board of Management (1940-1954).
The close ties between the Anglican Diocese of Perth, the Orphanages' Committee and other the boards and committees of Anglican children's homes and orphanages are summarised in Noisy Mansions (1986) by Roy Peterkin on pages 210-214.
