How precious their memories still
From the mid-1800s onwards many children were committed to the care of the State as neglected or destitute and placed in institutions or foster care.
Many of those who died while in care were buried in unmarked graves in this cemetery. The names listed below have been identified through researching surviving records. They represent hundreds of other unnamed children for whom no records can be found.
This plaque was laid in loving memory of all these chidlren.
