  1. I work for Mercy Family Services, Queensland and provide services for former residents of St. Vincent’s Home, Nudgee. If former residents are trying to access the Home’s records, I am very happy to help with that. I can be contacted via email, colleen.manning@mfsq.org.au or phone 07 3267 9000

  2. My grandmother was placed in this orphanage after her mother died in 1956. She never really talked about it much apart from that it was a horrible place. She would have been 10 when she was placed there. I’m trying to find any information on her stay there and photos if any. Her name was Maureen Luscine Mannion. But her last name could have been changed while in there.

  3. thankyou for your time.
