Sutton Home For Boys

3 Lenham Road, Sutton, Surrey

(1896 - 1897)

We have very little information on this Home as it was only open for one year and the only mention of it is in the Society's Annual Report of 1896.

From this we know that it was a small Cottage Home that housed 12 boys aged 8-12 years old. Its address was 3 Lenham Road, Sutton, and the Honorary Secretary was called Miss Corcoran.

The following year the Home closed although we do not know why, or whether the children were transferred elsewhere.
