I am trying to find out which association ran Hitchin Hatch childresn home in Sevenoaks, Kent. I have already tried all the obvious sources ie Social Services, Kent County Council, NCH, Barnados, and various web sites concerning Childrens homes in UK. The home closed down some years ago and I don't know where to try next. Does anyone out there know of this place or were even resident there? Please help me as this is an important link to my partners lost past. Many Thanks
