red mail Norlands Childrens Home - 1950s
I was in the Norlands Children's Home in Chislehurst from September 1953 to about January 1954. Norlands have no records now of the history of that site - I'd really like to hear from anyone who was there around this time and/or has any information on how they operated and how children came to be there.
