Memories of Romford, Manor Road 1908


My mother was in a childrens home in Manor Road, Homeleigh and Placents, Miss Erskine was the Matron and she remembers all the children as if it was yesterday, she has been looking for Margaret Cole for 57 years. She remembers Bobby Simpson, Primrose Burton, to only name a few, if anyone has anything they can tell me I would appreciate it. Many Thanks.

I was in Manor Road Children's Home and at Xmas we stood in a line to pick a second-hand toy from a tressel table which people gave to the home. I was at the back and I picked a doll with a china head that had a hole in, but to me it was wonderful. Oh, so many memories...
