W's mother hoped to be able to see her once she was in a Home: she was sorry to part with the child but could not help it. W. was admitted to the Victoria Home, Bolton le Sands on 7 March 1903. On 15 June 1905 she was transferred to the Corporation Sanatorium in Lancaster and returned to the Home on 4 August the same year. On the 25 May 1912 she returned to her mother in Manchester.
