Title: Children's home document
Post by: marka2378 on Wednesday 07 April 21 12:13 BST (UK)
The address of my grandmother says R.C Dormitory, whitechapel. Occupation charring, employer address ____ Sefton? Whitechapel Rd.

I can't make out what it says before Sefton and if Sefton is a persons name or part of the address.

Also on the top line which is about schooling says Romford - about 6 then I can't make out the rest.

Any help much appreciated.

I think it's Mrs Sefton - just looking as there are references to the name Sefton in some of the Census entries for Whitechapel Road.

Do you have a date for this document?

Thank you rosie99 and marka2378. I was just trying to track down the address for Mrs Sefton - the mother's employer from the censuses.
