West Lodge Cottage Home for Children
I am currently looking into my great grandmother’s history and have discovered that between the years 1916 and 1921(approx) she was a house mother at West Lodge Cottage Home for children, which was situated on Chesterfield Road South. The building no longer exists on modern town plans, so I assume it is long gone. I have however found reference to a West Lodge, very close to the existing County House on an old 1900 map. County House is the registery Office. Can anyone confirm the exact position of West Lodge, which apears to lie somewhere between Limehouse Rise and West Bank Avenue? My great grandmother’s name was Isabel Tunley. Is there any archive material available about the Cottage Homes in Mansfield?
