Our extensive archives house records of all the orphans that were cared for in the Müller Orphan Homes in Bristol - over 17,000 of them.
We often receive requests from individuals who are tracing their family history and, at a small charge, we are able to provide information and photocopies of the admission and dismissal dates of the orphans. In addition, there is usually other information we can locate in our archives such as a record of family details and a correspondence file, although these differ per record. These records do not form part of the public museum but can be viewed by arrangement. If you wish to arrange to view the records of your family member at our museum or you would like to obtain copies of records, please contact us to make an enquiry.
