St Vincent's Home for Boys, near Feltham, London

In around 1948, the Crusade of Rescue (now the Catholic Children's Society, Westminster) opened the St Vincent's Home for Boys at Fagg's Road, Hatton, near Feltham, Middlesex. It was run by the Daughters of Charity and was presumably located in part of the premises occupied by the St Anthony's Girls' Home.

The St Vincent's Home was closed in 1958 and the inmates transferred to the Crusade of Rescue Home at 73 St Charles' Square, North Kensington. The Feltham site was closed in 1962 and the buildings subsequently demolished as part the expansion of Heathrow Airport.
