National Childrens Home NCH Alverstoke Memories History Photos and People

National Children’s Home NCH Alverstoke

This page for the National Children’s Home NCH Alverstoke, was originally setup on the old web site as I received a number of items for it from around the World. I felt it would be better to have all the information in a stand alone section within the site.

Items to Help Those Looking for More Information

– I am most interested in your NCH articles having lived myself in a NCH home with my siblings at Newton Hall in the Northwest of England. I myself run a ex-children’s home msn group. We do have one member who himself lived at Alverstoke, and of whom my be of interest to Mrs Freeman and other ex residents who have written on your website. My carer too started out at Alverstoke and is in fact from Gosport. I would be grateful if you could pass on my details to the ex residents of Alverstoke. I found your site through  Derek

– I am so excited to find the National Children’s Home, on you’re site. I was in the home 1963-66. I went in as an infant under the care of Sister Olive Bell, I was transferred to Sister Ivy Bell, who later became my mother. I have so many fond memories, and still keep in contact with my best friend from there, she came to see me in 2001, 37 years later, please, if you have any photo’s in your archives, I’d love to see them. I also have old photos of Sunshine House, Little Church, and other houses on the site. Please let me know if there is someone I can contact, to see if I can get addresses of other children from that time. Peacock was my maiden name, please forward my e-mail address to anyone who remembers me. Lorrell in Canada

(I have had to remove the link as it seems the website has gone. I did find a couple of others, but they do not seem to have anything about NCH Alverstoke. If you come across a site that could fit here, please let me know.

– Just wondered whether you might be able to help me. Can you write up on your site, any memories of the N.C.H. Alverstoke. This is now Action for Children. I was there from 1949 to 1954. Would love to hear from anyone who has any memories. Peter Sparrey. Highbury House.

– Upon looking at the requests pages, I can see I can help with Julie. Lynne. Steve Dade. If you can direct me to how I can give info to these folk, I will be happy to do so.. Peter Sparrey. Highbury House.

I have Peter’s email which he said can be passed on those interested in N.C.H Alverstoke. Ian Jeffery
