British Home Children

Over 100,000 children were sent to Canada from England, under the Child Immigration scheme from 1833-1939. These boys and girls ranged in age from toddlers to adolescents and were all unaccompanied by their parents even though only one-third of them were orphans.Siblings were often separated from each other when they were sent to Canada. Most never saw each other again. Many spent their lives trying to identify their parents and find their siblings and most were unsuccessful. These children were not sent to be welcomed into families or adopted, but rather a source of cheap labour for Canadian farms. This cemetery is made up of the memorials posted of British Home Children. Compiled by the British Home Children Advocacy & Research Association, more information on the British Home Children can be found at in our Registry at: www.britishhomechildrenregistry.com or www.BritishHomeChildren.com
