Remembering The Royal Female Orphanage

4 August - 3 September

This free must-see exhibition will unearth untold stories from the orphanage which was housed at Carew Manor in Beddington Park for nearly a century, from 1866 – 1939.

Visit to find out about the history of Carew and St Mary’s Church as well as the daily life for girls in an orphanage in the Victorian times and up to the start of the Second World War.

Showcasing never-before-seen archival documents and historic objects with oral history recollections from direct descendants of those who attended, this exhibition will share stories of a forgotten chapter in Carew’s history and bring the girls’ memories to life.

You can also see the exhibition at:

The house dates to the 17th century with Victorian and Edwardian extensions, including a very fine billiards room. Permanent exhibitions tell the fascinating history of the house and the people who lived there and illustrate the history of the Borough of Sutton and the development of Carshalton.
