Putnam House - Mid Bucks Shelter and Maternity Home - Records
« on: Friday 28 June 13 09:54 BST (UK) »
Hi there

Trying to track down admissions/discharges from Putnam House in 1939. Bucks RO say that all records were transferred to a charity, Parents And Children Together, but specifically said that they thought very few records prior to 1952 were still in existence

Ive contacted Parents And Children Together and they say they have no records from Putnam House at all

Has anyone had an joy in finding out where these records may be?

Thanks

Hi, just wondered - since its been a year since you posted - if you had had any joy tracking down the records? I'm hoping to find one from 1946 and possibly another earlier.

Hi there

I m afraid I'm no closer to finding out but have to admit it hasn't been a priority in the past year. Good luck with your research

Hi just come across your question,I have tried over a number of years to find out more pre 1952 records without any luck.Putnam House was administered by the Diocese of Church of England Oxford they have no records.The for Library for Buckinghamshire  Studies in Aylesbury have some photos of Putnam House but little information.
