Many thanks to both of you - the Fir Vale Homes were opened in 1894 -  1939 though the workhouse was opened in 1881. Thank you for the extra info on Edward Hamilton - he was on my list and I knew he was killed but wasn't aware of the details.

Is that the Frank Rymill - 1891 birth - 9c 574 - mothers maiden name Clevery ?

Appears in 1901 Children's Home -  Brightside Bierlow, Yorkshire with a brother Thomas Rymill aged 12 years - Frank Rymill 11 years ?

What information have you got so far ?  When was your last UK sighting ?

See attachment - yes you have the right person there - he seems to have disappeared aged 17 in 1909 in Canada. His mother was still alive but I think they sent him to Canada aged 11 probably because he had been in a truant school three times and they  thought he needed some discipline. Last UK sighting is 1903 when he left England.

Found a Frank Radall on http://www.automatedgenealogy.com/uidlinks/BhcList.jsp Tried to get some links up but nothing works. 
Would like to check this out just in case it is my Frank with a poor transcription of his surname.
Thanks
Lyn

Many thanks Sandra - very quick. I'll study it to see if there is anyone else by that name that was sent out first.
