Hiya and Welcome to Rootschat
The Little Sisters of the Poor on Aigburth road is now St Charles Parochial Social Club...my Aunty Kate(my dads great Aunt) went to the building when she was 80 and I visited there quite often...I was only about 8 so we are talking late 1950`s here...I am 99% certain of it`s position, BUT if I am wrong I apologise ....I would think if you visited St Charles the Priest would give you the relevant info.it is in between
Tramway Road and Burdett Street on Aigburth Road.....allan ;)

Thanks so much will do !

Thanks Valda
Yes Im aware of the website for the Little Sisters.  As I already mentioned, my aunt is one of the community of (the now) elderly sisters.  They do not now have a convent in Liverpool which is a real pity - they have homes in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, etc.  I just wanted to know what development now stan ds on the site of the former St. Augustines.  Anyway, tha nks for your reply.

Can anyone help me please ?

I visit Liverpool a couple of times a year.  I once stayed in a convent in Aigburth area of Liverpool which was run by the Little Sisters of the Poor.  This order of sisters cared for the elderly and I remember the buildings were quite old.  I think the Little Sisters sold the site in the 1980's, but I would really love to visit the site and to know what has been built in its place.  This order also had a home in Belmond Road Liverpool which has also been sold.  As my aunt is now a very elderly member of the community, I would really love any information I can get about these convents, as I have very happy memories of visits there.
