Register of children maintained by the Guardians in institutions and schools other than those provided by the Guardians

Scope and Content

Poor Law Unions did not accommodate all the children for whom they were responsible in their own institutions; for various reasons, some were sent to other institutions, either locally or in other parts of the country. This register records the names of children, the name of institution they were in, how long they stayed there, and the weekly cost. It is arranged and indexed by the name of the institution.
