Birmingham children from Middlemore Homes emigrated to Canada in June 1906

In the past I have posted re: Arthur Edwards, a nephew of g-grandfather Clayton who was emigrated to Canada as a 'home child' in 1906.

Arthur appears at the top of one of these passenger lists sailing on The Siberian to Halifax, Nova Scotia, arriving on 23rd June 1906.

With about up to 40 children aged between 3 and 15 on some of these pages there are over 100 Birmingham children from Middlemore Home on this sailing with just one staff member, a Matron, and a handful of older teenagers described as farmers and a dress maker.

One of the lists also includes two sisters named Edith and Maria Millington aged 9 and 4.
