The Children of the Homes: a century of Erdington Cottage Homes

by Gudrun Limbrick (Author) Format: Kindle Edition

Erdington Cottage Homes (aka Aston Union Cottage Homes) were founded as part of the workhouse in Aston, North Birmingham in 1899. They remained in use until the late 1980s as one of the largest and longest-lasting children’s homes in the UK. This book uses oral history to tell the story of life in the homes through the memories of its former residents.
