Hillingdon Heath Home for Girls, Uxbridge, Middlesex

The Hillingdon Heath Home for Girls was a small 'cottage home' operated by the Waifs and Strays Society from about 1886 to 1898. It is thought to have been located in a property known as Hayes House, at the north side of the London (now Uxbridge) Road, Hillingdon Heath, near Uxbridge, just a few hundred yards from the Firs Home for Girls. The home could accommodate up to 20 girls up to the age of 8, at which age they would either be fostered or transferred to other Society homes.

The home was closed in 1898. The building no longer exists.
