Former Residents' Folders (1900s - )


The Professional Standards Office Records Service of the Catholic Church holds a number of folders containing information relating to individual former residents of a number of Homes run by the Catholic Church. The contents of these folders vary. Some contain little or no information but others may contain items such as admission forms, maintenance and general correspondence and index cards. A small number may also contain Baptismal certificates and some social work casenotes.

Information is open to former residents or family members who can prove their relationship to the resident.
