    Nazareth House, Middlesbrough

    I was resident in Nazareth House, Middlesbrough between 1936-1944. A Catholic run orphanage. I would be interested in hearing from anyone that was resident during that time.

      Welcome to the forum lennon.
      Mary hasn't logged on for some time so may not see your message. Might be best to send her a private message - providing the email address we have for her is still current she will receive an email indicating that you have contacted her.
      To send a message click on her name to the left of the first post in this thread and you will see the "private message" option.

                  Mary only posted once and doesn't appear to have visited this site recently, but you can send her a private message by clicking on her name. If she logs in she will receive your message.

                  Have you found Mary Giles on the 1939 register? Do you mean she was in the home for all those years or just at some point?

                    Nazareth House Middlesbrough was not a mother and baby home, it was a catholic girls' school and orphanage.

                    Nazareth House will answer queries by post and there is no charge. Be aware though, that many of their archives have been "lost".

                            I am sorry, I can't tell how or why, but Mary is no longer a member of the site.

                                The 1939 register was a sort of census taken on the eve of Ww2 in 1939. It was intended mostly for information for food rationing purposes but it was updated after the war until about 1992 I think and used as an NHS register. It contains useful information about where people were living in 1939. I don't have access but I am sure someone else will do a look up for you.

                                      I'm a bit puzzled. According to Peter Higginbottom, the authority on children's homes and institutions, Nazareth House in Middlesbrough took elderly infirm people and also orphaned Catholic girls aged between 2 and 12, so.not sure why Mary would have been there between 1936 and 1944 unless she was employed there.

                                      There is no mention anywhere of it being either a Magdalene laundry or a M & B home.

                                      It was, of course, one of the homes investigated as part of the abuse scandals surrounding Nazareth Homes.

                                        I have not been able to find a Mary Giles with a birth date of 14 Feb 1920 on the 1939 register. Have searched for just Giles with that date too.
