I had a grandfather George Alfred Ford who was a home child sent back in the 1880's to Canada by Barnardos on the ship the Sardinian. I got his information from Barnardos at a price and there is information on Library and Archives Canada under Home Children. I was able to track him that way. There is also the website as previous mentioned to look at. Barnardos website tells you how to order the information but they will do a search to see if they have any first and then charge for the amount they have.
