This page has memories and pictures contributed by Michelle Luck:
My great aunt, Dora Davies was admitted from Swinton Industrial Schools to Styal Cottage Homes on 24 September 1926 at the age of eleven. Unfortunately, I do not have a photo of Dora at the homes. Her twin brothers, Arthur and Harry Davies (my great uncle and grandad) were admitted from Crumpsall Workhouse to Styal Cottage Homes on 9 June 1922 at the age of nearly three and stayed there until approximately 1935. Harry Davies was in the band at Styal Homes.
Here is a photo of Harry and Arthur with some friends taken at the homes - Back Row: L-R Arthur Davies, Colin Jamieson, Harry Davies and Frank Sutton. If anyone knows the names of the two boys in the front row, I would love to know.
Also, here is a photo of Miss Shedlock, Arthur and Harry's house mother. If anyone recognises any of the names mentioned above, I would love to hear from you.
If you do want to get in touch with Michelle Luck then please email this website & I'll pass it on.
