Letchworth Village - Patient Records

Letchworth Village - Patient Records

Classification: Query
My aunt was a resident of Letchworth Village for almost her entire life. There are family stories about why she was there but nothing substantive. I would really like to be able to petition for her records, but I do not have the first idea on how to do it. I have tried the internet but could not come up with anything specific.

Is there anybody out there who has successfully done this and would like to spread the informaation. Thank you.

My grandmother was placed there in 1936 - 2 months after being raped. Before her death, my mother assisted her in writing a letter to obtain her records. While they recovered many, MUCH was withheld. I’m guessing an immediate surviving family member can phone and ask about obtaining records.? Write to request? Or even Petition a court?
