My late father spent a few years at Tudhoe Orphanage (St.Mary's). I
did a little 'digging' into the institution's records only to find
that the place was demolished in the 1960s to make way for a housing
estate. Surviving records are held by:

Catholic Care North-East, St.Cuthbert's House, West Rd,
Newcastle-on-Tyne, NE15 7PY (Tel: 0191 2280111).

They didn't have a great deal of info on my old man, but you may be
more fortunate.

Good Luck,
