Soldiers Daughters Home

The Royal Soldiers' Daughters' Home, no. 65 Rosslyn Hill, was founded at Rosslyn House in 1855 to relieve the families of soldiers in the Crimea. 

Originally intended for destitute war orphans, it later took the daughters of serving, or retired soldiers; they were admitted from infancy to 13 and left at 16, able ones being trained to become teachers. From 1924 the school was maintained by the L.C.C., with a roll of c. 110 until the Second World War.
