Hello everybody,

I'm new here and still finding my way around this site but must say I find it a bit confusing.

I'm wondering if anyone has any information about Norwood House which used to stand on the corner of Elder Road diagonally opposite Virgo Fidelis Convent School. Back in the 1950s and 60s it was a LCC run half way house for single parent families without their own home, before that I believe it was a children's home and in the 1970s I know it became a nursing home.

I'm trying to gain information about some of the families who may have lived there in the 1960s, mine included following the breakdown of my parents marriage, and if there are any records held anywhere in Lambeth.

I would be very grateful to receive any information about this. Thank you.
