Hi all, one of my maternal aunts is in the 1939 Register as being in the Williamson Hostel in Ormskirk. She would have been 13 at the time. There are a number of children there as well as some nurses, including fever nurses. I know that she was sick a lot and was often in hospital. I have Googled for it and traced it to being a YMCA, and in a Yorkshire newspaper extract in 1941 it was asking for people who may want to be farmers. Just wondering at the outbreak of war what the children, both boys and girls would be doing there; was it a convalescence home at the time for maybe Scarlet Fever etc? I would be grateful for any comments.
Many thanks
