Finding the right childrens home.
« on: Monday 02 April 18 08:26 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone,
Can anyone suggest which might be a likely CATHOLIC Children's Home a 7 year old boy from Gorton, Manchester would be placed in after the death of his father in 1932ish? I imagine children would have been kept as close to home as possible?

Ideas/suggestions greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Have you located him on the 1939 register or is he still living and therefore will not be visible on there.

Hi Rosie, he's been dead a long while. Which register are you referring to?

Hi again rosie99. I looked up the 1939 register you suggested. Whilst the boy in question passed away a long time ago, it has not yet been 100 years since his birth, therefore he does not yet appear on that register. Many thanks for the suggestion though, it was a good idea. I wasn't previously aware of the register.

The register was updated when they died until 1990 (It was used by the NHS).  Since putting the register online FindMyPast has been updating it by uncovering later deaths - the 100 year rule only applies if they have not established someone is deceased.
