Barnardo’s Memorial to children and staff 1885 to 1976

Children and adults were buried in Barnardo’s own plot in the grounds of Holy Trinity Church upto February 1927.

Since that time an area of Barkingside Cemetery has been reserved for members of Dr Barnardo’s village.

On the 6th Oct 2008 a new memorial was dedicated to the memory of Barnardo children and staff, at Barkingside Cemetery. It lists over 600 names.

Unlike many other organisations Barnado’s welcomed and cared for children whether they had illnesses or disabilities or not.

  3. Jennifer Trochanowski says:

    Hello
    My Great Grandmother is Gertrude May Woodcock. I received her file from Barnardo’s and from what I see there was not a daughter named Annie. The siblings that I see listed in the file are Selina Maud (3), Percy (2) (both admitted to Barnardos with Gert) Emily (12), John James (10), Violet (9), Ernest (7), Daniel Luke (6 wks), they all stayed with their father according to the records I received.
    After that I am not sure what happened to the rest of the children if they stayed with their father or not, they would only send me the info about my great grandmother….but I did receive a photo of Gertrude upon admission and also a picture of the 3 siblings together (Gertrude, Selina and Percy).
    Hope that bit of info can help you. I would also like to know more about the siblings that stayed with their father….I am searching whenever I have time.
    Jennifer
