Rudolf Memorial Home, Tilford Common, near Farnham, Surrey

In September 1943, the Waifs and Strays Society opened one of its many wartime evacuation homes at the Tilford Children's Convalescent Home, Grange Road, Tilford Common, near Farnham in Surrey. The Farnham home received the boys and girls from the Rudolf Memorial Home at Banstead and itself then became known as the Rudolf Memorial Home, Farnham.

The home closed in 1945, with the boys then being transferred to the St Aldhelm Home for Boys at Frome, and the girls to the Cheam, Kibworth or Leighton Buzzard homes. p>The Tilford Common property is now a nursing home.
