Deeds of Love: The story of Josiah Mason's Orphanage in Birmingham 

This orphanage was started by the industrialist, Sir Josiah Mason, as an act of charity. The enormous building was  demolished in the 1960s leaving virtually no trace of the hundreds of children who once lived there. 

Ever wanted to know?

Who were the children buried in the grounds?

What is the grisly fact about Josiah's bust on Chester Road?

What mark has Sir Josiah left in Erdington?

This book has the answers to these any many other questions.
