I seek any info. from anyone who was at the above convent c 1949-51 or who knows /knew anyone from there.There was also a home for unmarried mothers attached to it as I understand.There is very little on line about the school or home.I was sent there for some reason from Newcastle -a number of years ago I spoke to a nun who had been there & I was told 'dear, the nuns would have destroyed the records when they left in 1973 to go to Oxford' Why? Any help would be gratefully received.

It's unlikely (although not impossible) that anyone with personal knowledge will spot your post, so you'll have to do a little more digging yourself.

"All Saints Pastoral Centre was built in 1901 as a convent for the All Saints Sisters."
