Elsmere, , Lytham St. Annes, 

Sister Audrey Browne


General branch for 16 children


Elsmere, in the lively seaside town of , only five miles from , was bought to extend the work of the National Children’s Home in 1946.  There are excellent links with churches and schools, and although it has not had a lot of history, this branch has already begun to talk with pride of the achievements of old girls and boys.

Hello St Anne's!

I have a photo album here of St. Anne's & the children which I 'inherited' from Sister Hannah Wilson, Officer in Charge during the 1950's - 60's.

Sister Hannah & Sister Dorothy Scarlett were both previously at Sheringham Branch (as was I). Needless to say, I don't know any of the St. Anne's children or Staff & I wonder if there's anyone out there who would like to have the album....or shall I send it to AFC - Archives Dept.??

Perhaps someone will let me know please!

Shirley

ELSMERE

Hello I was resident at Elsemere, St Annes on Sea in 1954 until around 1958 with my brother. when we returned to our parents in East Anglia.  I was quite young but remember Sister Enid and Sister Brown as well as Sister Hannah. At the age of 3 Sister Hannah was very special to me and I have never forgotten her. I did write to the home in my later life and was put in touch with her eventually but she was quite old and not well at the time and I only recived one letter from her. I have tried searching on the internet previously but there seems very little interest from ex residents of Elsemere. Any photographs that you have of the period mentioned would be of interest to me. My brother died 5 years ago, leaving two young sons and I have tried without any luck to obtain photographs of him from Heyhouses primary school. The Head Teacher promised to send them but never did. I do have an odd few photographs of that period at St Annes myself although the quality is not very good.  I have received my records but there is only a handful of pages covering the whole 4 years that I was resident, my brother also only received a handful of documents and 4 photographs in the 1960's after we had left the home.

Dear Shirley,

I have just seen your post concerning photographs.

Are you or a "new technology" friend able to scan these photos and add them to this section of the site? They would then be available for more people to view and especially those Old Boys and Girls that were at NCH St Annes Branch and want to fill some of the missing pieces of their childhood jigsaw. If you do not want to keep the album, I suggest you send it by recorded delivery to the Archives Department at Action for Children Watford.

Best wishes,

Clive
