House Of Help

Recommended Posts

popt

My ancestors lived at 2 Bingham Square on Trafalgar Lane.

I have just found a copy of the details of girls who spent time there in the 1888-1906 period who needed help.

These details are on the Sheffield and district family History website.

My family were still living at this address during this period.

Can anyone enlighten me or give me any clues to where i could find out what the situation was and who paid for the upkeep of the place.

My Great Grandfather Stephen Terry died there in 1893 and his wife Anne Terry nee Ellis died there in 1889.

Any information would be appreciated. Thanking you PopT

Hi.

The actual admission registers give more information including parent's names, and why the child was admitted. Makes very interesting reading.

If you give me their names I'll film the admissions when I'm next at the local studies,(if you are still in NZ) as the archives are closed.

I might have to order the books from where they have stored them and this requires 10 days notice.
