Product description

Review

"With yet more revelations every day of what went on in various of these terrible establishments during the 20th century, Peter Higginbotham's timely book sometimes makes for uncomfortable reading, but it remains a vital addition to the social history of Britain, warts and all." (Books Monthly)

That this book is well-researched is very evident..., it is possible that this volume may become a major research-tool for those interested in British social history, orphanages, child welfare and the evolution of child foster care within Great Britain. (NZ Crown Mines)

About the Author

Peter Higginbotham is an established author, best known for his work on the workhouse through six books (The Workhouse Encyclopedia, Grim Almanac of the Workhouse, Workhouse Cookbook etc.), his website workhouses.org.uk, magazine articles, and participation in TV programmes such as Who Do Think You Are? and Heir Hunters. In recent years Peter been extensively researching the history of children s homes, which he details in his website http://www.childrenshomes.org.uk/.
