Mass grave with 400 children found at UK Orphanage by BBC News









 






Sick! This is really sick! Looks like there was some type of satanist child sacrifice going on in there yet nothing changes. At what point will Europeans wake up and dismiss democracy and communism for their evilness? We need to make some changes.

Up to 400 children who died at a Scottish orphanage are believed to have been dumped in a mass grave, research has revealed.

The Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul ran the Smyllum Park orphanage in Lanark from 1864 until it closed in 1981.

The nuns previously acknowledged that children had been buried in 158 compartments in the town’s St Mary’s Cemetery.

But a joint investigation by the BBC’s File on Four programme and the Sunday Post newspaper has shown 402 children died at the orphanage.

It is thought that most were buried in an unmarked section at St Mary’s.

Former First Minister Jack McConnell, who apologised on behalf of the Scottish Government to victims of care home abuse in 2004, said: ‘After so many years of silence, we must now know the truth of what happened.’

Analysis of 15,000 records has found that an average of one child died at the home, pictured, every three months. It is not suggested that any people pictured here were involved.

It is believed most, without families able to pay for funerals, were buried at St Mary’s.

As the youngsters were from places across Scotland, spot checks with other authorities found only two were laid to rest elsewhere.

A total of 11,601 residents passed through Smyllum Park during its decades in operation, according to evidence given at the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.

Records show names and dates of birth and death. Descriptions of causes of death include accidents and diseases of the time such as TB, flu and scarlet fever. Some died of malnutrition.

Eddie McColl, 73, pictured, a former resident at Smyllum along with four of his siblings, lost his brother Francis, 13, in August 1961.

It means the death rate among residents, aged one to 14, was at least 30 deaths per 1,000.

According to National Records of Scotland figures, the highest mortality rate among this age group was in 1901 when 10.4 deaths per 1,000 were recorded.

Janice Carberry, whose brother David passed away in 1952 at the age of four, said there were no records showing where he was buried.

But she claimed one of her brothers had been told the boy was put in St Mary’s cemetery ‘in a wee corner of grass’.

The death rate among residents at the home, pictured, was at least 30 deaths per 1,000.

Mr McColl, who had left the orphanage by that time, was only told by the nuns that his brother had died after an accident.

But the pensioner said: ‘I’ve heard from kids who were at Smyllum that someone was showing them how to use a golf club and asked them to step back. But Francis didn’t hear it and got struck on the head, that’s what killed him.

‘Smyllum was a hell. I have no idea where he is buried and have asked the Daughters of Charity repeatedly.’

In a statement, the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul said: ‘We are core participants in the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry and are co-operating fully with that inquiry.

‘We remain of the view that this inquiry is the most appropriate forum for such investigations.

‘Given the ongoing work of the inquiry, we do not wish to provide any interviews.

‘We wish to again make clear that our values are totally against any form of abuse and thus we offer our most sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone who suffered any form of abuse while in our care.’

The charity has previously appeared at the inquiry in Edinburgh where it claimed there was no evidence of abuse or mistreatment. But it has been called back to give further evidence in November.

The hearing will also consider four other residential care establishments run by the Daughters of Charity.

A Scottish Government spokesman said: ‘Clearly these are serious allegations and our thoughts are with the families of those affected.

‘We recognise the great hurt and damage caused to those who were abused in childhood by the very individuals and institutions who should have cared for them.

‘That is why we established an independent inquiry into the abuse of children in care.’

Bodies of 400 Children Discovered in Hidden Mass Grave at Catholic Orphanage

orphanageorphanage

The results of a horrifying investigation into a Catholic orphanage are being released this week. The report revealed the discovery of a mass grave containing the bodies of over 400 orphans—including babies, toddlers, and children.

The investigation, conducted by the Sunday Post and the BBC, looked into the dark secret of the Catholic run Smyllum Park orphanage. While the orphanage—which operated for a century and a half—put headstones on the graves of nuns and staff members, no stone or memorial has ever recorded the deaths of these 402 orphans found buried in a single mass grave.

According to the Sunday Post, the revelation that up to 400 youngsters – and some adults – are buried there today provoked calls for Scotland’s ongoing Child Abuse Inquiry to investigate.

As the BBC reports, the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul, which ran the home, refused to comment on the findings.

Former First Minister, Jack McConnell, who, on behalf of the Scottish Government, apologized to victims of care home abuse in 2004, said it was shameful they were still waiting for truth and justice, reports the Post. He said, “It is heartbreaking to discover so many children may have been buried in these unmarked graves. After so many years of silence, we must now know the truth of what happened here.”

According to the BBC, “Analysis of the records show that a third of those who died were aged 5 or younger. Twenty-four of those who died were older than 15, and most of the deaths occurred between 1870 and 1930.”

The Post noted that what this means is that “the death rate among 1- to 14-year-olds was at least 30 deaths per 1,000.”

“Analysis of figures from the National Records of Scotland, reveal the highest mortality rate among children aged between 1 and 14 was in 1901 when 10.4 deaths per 1,000 were recorded,” it added.

This means the mortality rate for children in the Catholic run orphanage was 300 percent higher than the highest mortality rate of Scottish children ever recorded.

“Some children were sent to the home from other places across central Scotland, so spot checks were also made with a number of other areas. Burial records were discovered in Glasgow for two of the dead. No other area we approached could find any burial record for the names we asked them to check,” according to the BBC.

“As the Daughters of Charity have previously indicated that children were buried in an unmarked plot at the cemetery, and that their records are incomplete, all the bodies are believed to be buried in the graveyard.”

The inquiry into the mass grave began in 2003 when two former residents of the orphanage Frank Docherty and Jim Kane set out in their efforts to expose the rampant physical abuse which they claimed happened regularly to many of the children.

Docherty and Kane were told by Daughter of Charity of St Vincent de Paul that their records suggested that only 158 children had been buried on the property. However, Docherty and Kane, who both died earlier this year, suspected those numbers to be much higher. The BBC/Post investigation proves they were right.

“Oh my God, I’ve got goose pimples. It’s shocking,” said Frank Docherty’s widow, Janet, when the Post told her the results of their investigation.

“He had been trying for years to find a figure and he didn’t get anywhere. That’s unbelievable.

“Frank always feared there were more kids buried there and this is proof of that,” she said. “He would have been content that it has come out now at last.”

According to the BBC’s report,

Analysis of the records show that a third of those who died were aged five or under. Very few of those who died, 24 in total, were aged over 15, and most of the deaths occurred between 1870 and 1930.

One of those believed to be buried there is Francis McColl. He died in 1961, aged 13; his death certificate indicates he died from a brain hemorrhage.

His brother Eddie spent decades wondering what had happened to Francis. At one point, he heard he’d been struck on the head by a golf club, which now chimes with the evidence of the death certificate.

However, according to the report, Eddie could find no records of where his brother was buried.

“It’s ridiculous,” he says. “I’m not happy about that. Whoever is behind this, I hope they can live with themselves.”

Many allegations of abuse at the care home were also uncovered by File on 4 and the Sunday Post, including beatings, punches, public humiliations and psychological abuse, according to the report.

The Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul have declined to speak publicly on any of these recent revelations.

However, they released a statement saying, “We are Core Participants in the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry and are co-operating fully with that inquiry.

“We remain of the view that this inquiry is the most appropriate forum for such investigations.

“Given the ongoing work of the inquiry we do not wish to provide any interviews.

“We wish to again make clear that, as Daughters of Charity, our values are totally against any form of abuse and thus, we offer our most sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone who suffered any form of abuse whilst in our care.”

Bodies Of ‘Hundreds’ Of Children Discovered In Mass Grave At Scottish Orphanage

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Something straight out of a horror movie has presented itself in real life, and many don’t know what to think about the discovery. It was recently learned that up to 400 children died at a Scottish orphanage that was run by Catholic nuns. To make matters worse, the bodies were discovered in one single, unmarked mass grave.

The Telegraph reports that the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul ran the Smyllum Park orphanage in Lanarkshire, where hundreds of homeless children were sent to live. In the past, the nuns admitted to burying 158 children at a nearby cemetery, but some have long suspected the real figure was much higher. They were right.

The investigation, which was carried out by BBC Radio 4’s File on Four program and the Sunday Post newspaper, revealed that hundreds of children had died at Smyllum — far more than the charity admitted. In total, 402 babies, toddlers and children perished at the orphanage between 1864 and 1981 (the year the establishment closed its doors). The bodies were found in an unmarked grave at St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Though there are headstones noting the location of the nuns and staff members, no memorial can be found recording the names of the deceased children. In 2004, on behalf of the British government, former First Minister Jack McConnell apologized to victims of care home abuse. He said it was “shameful” they were still waiting for the truth and justice. “It is heartbreaking to discover so many children may have been buried in these unmarked graves. After so many years of silence, we must now know the truth of what happened here,” said McConnell.

Former residents have spoken out about their time at the orphanage and have accused the nuns and staff of beating and neglecting some of the kids in their care. During the second phase of an inquiry starting in November, the care given at Smyllum will be scrutinized as a result. This newest revelation has also provoked calls to investigate how and when the children died at the orphanage.

Janet Bishop of the Association of Scottish Genealogists And Researchers in Archives led the research. For the initial investigation, Bishop and her team looked through 15,000 official records. They learned that for the most part, there are no recorded details of the children’s lives other than their dates of birth and deaths. Most of the deaths occurred between 1870 and 1930. Causes of deaths listed include accidents, diseases (such as tuberculosis, flu and scarlet fever), and even malnutrition. Between the years of 1864 and 1981, 11,601 children passed through Smyllum Park, according to evidence obtained by the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.

The Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul refused to comment, but said in a statement: “We are Core Participants in the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry and are co-operating fully with that inquiry. We remain of the view that this inquiry is the most appropriate forum for such investigations. Given the ongoing work of the inquiry we do not wish to provide any interviews. We wish to again make clear that, as Daughters of Charity, our values are totally against any form of abuse and thus, we offer our most sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone who suffered any form of abuse whilst in our care.”

Though this recent finding is disturbing, at the very least, it is good to know details concerning this tragedy are being revealed.=
