I found this information on the Cottages Homes: The cottage homes were set up to provide a brighter future for poor and orphaned children.  A master or superintendent and a matron headed a small team of staff that offered children some of the advantages that had been lost to them.  A place to sleep, bathe, food to eat 
and the chance to learn a trade that might benefit them in later life.  They were educated, given space to play, and even outings as a special treat”.

Arthur married Ada Smith on the 30th? June 1900 at the Register Office in the district of Worcester. 
(Arthur's  age is down as 21, but as we know he was born on 3/10/1881 this would make him only 19?)
Both fathers, John and Charles Smith are down as deceased.

Arthur occupation is down as a Brush Maker.
Both Arthur and Ada live in Worcester at the time of their marriage, Arthur was at 10 Dolday and Ada at 15 *Dolday.
