610. Smyllum Park Orphanage

Investigation has shown that the bodies of over 100 children have been buried in a local cemetary. Of course it needs to be taken into consideration that the facility opened back in 1864 and the medical standards were not as high as today.

Still some of the deaths cause concern. Former residents speak of abuse. Were some of the death certificates made without proper investigation into what caused the deaths? It seems so.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
