Clarendon, Cardiff, Glamorgan, Wales

In 1946, the National Children's Home (NCH) opened a new branch at Clarendon, 16 Cyn-Coed Avenue, Cyncoed, Cardiff. The property had been donated by a former Lord Mayor of Cardiff. Accommodating just 14 children, it was one of the NCH's smallest branches, .

The property no longer exists and modern housing now occupies the site.
