I was wondering if anyone had come across where to enquire/find the records for the House of Compassion, Pimlico around 1910/1911? The actual address was 61/63 Sutherland Street, St. George Hanover Square, London and was a home for unmarried mothers run by a charity. The 1911 census shows the residents and children at the time at the home and I can see baptisms of some of those residents/children living there at that time but these records don't answer my little mystery!
Also has anyone heard if it was not uncommon for an unmarried mother around that time to take the opportunity to baptise themselves under a new christian name in order to have a fresh start?
