The number of orphen deaths
Posted by Jan barton on June 9, 2018, 22:24:00
We were looking around the cemetery and came across the grave stones for the boys and girls orphans of Liverpool who died in the orphan asylums. Are the number of deaths at such a young age suspicious or was it normal for so many children to die at such a young age when in orphanages at the time?
