Chruch of England boys homes in Hamilton

My maternal grandfather lived in Canada and I now have reason to believe he was sent there from Hertfordshire, England. He was an inmate of Halsey Swan boys home for waifs and strays and when boys turned 13 or 14, they were often sent to the homes over in Canada.
Does anyone know the names and locations of any of the homes that might have been associated with the Halsey Swan boys home?
I am looking at the period around 1911 and my grandfather always said he was from Ward st, Hamilton, Ontario. So I am guessing a home in that area.
Thanks.
