When the Roden Villa home in Llandudno was closed in 1973, its superintendent Gladys Madgwick and children were transferred to Tudor Bank. The home also received staff and children from Liverpool's Aigburth Road after its closure.

Tudor Bank closed in 1981. In more recent times, the property, now much extended, has become an elderly care home.
