Access your records

Have you or your relatives stayed with us?
We have been able to help lots of people trace their family trees, by providing details from our archives, about relatives who spent time with us. We are also able to help individuals to trace their own records, if they have spent time in our care.
How to access records
Simply complete the form to request your or your relatives’ record. We will return you record within a calendar month of confirming your record is available and receiving suitable ID.
Data Protection: Please note, if you are requesting access to your own record you must provide a valid form of ID such as copy of your birth certificate or photocopy of your driving license or passport. If you are not requesting information from your own file we will require proof of ID from yourself plus confirmation of your relationship to the person who owns the file you are requesting. For example, this could be a power of attorney (or similar) if the person is still alive or the person’s death certificate. Another option is to include a copy of your birth certificate if you are requesting information on your parent.
