Glan-y-Mor, Rhyl, Flintshire, Wales

In 1986, the National Children's Home (NCH) established a new family centre at Rhyl in North Wales. The branch initially operated from a portakabin before moving to its permanent premises at Glan-y-Mor, 36 Sandringham Avenue, where the official opening was performed by NCH ambassador Nerys Hughes.


Note: many repositories impose a closure period of up to 100 years for records identifying individuals. Before travelling a long distance, always check that the records you want to consult will be available.

  • Action For Children (formerly the National Children's Home) can provide access to care records for people who were adopted through the charity or who resided in one of its homes. Currently this service is only available to the individuals concerned and not to the descendents of deceased former residents.
