St George's Home for Boys, Fleetwood, Lancashire

The St George's Home for Boys was opened by the Waifs and Strays Society in 1939 at Fleetwood, Lancashire. The home, which was located in the old military hospital on Cemetery Lane (now Beach Road), Fleetwod, was used as the wartime evacuation home of the St George's Home For Boys at Kersal, and the Rochdale Home for Boys. How long the home remained open is unclear, although the Kersal boys had been relocated to Ponty-y-Pant in North Wales by 1943.

The Fleetwood site no longer exists.
