The main building of the Norwood Home for Jewish Children was completed in 1862. It was a three storey edifice, with the appearance of a Jacobean palace. This structure was demolished in 1963, after the children had moved in groups to live in nine houses supervised by house parents in a less institutional environment, meeting for communal activities at a new synagogue built on the original site. In the 1970s, the charity moved out of the area and the main site was sold to Lambeth Council, which developed much of it for a housing estate, keeping only a small area beside the railway line as open space and converting the synagogue into a community facility known as the Norwood Hall.
Some of this open space is now occupied by the West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre but the site of Norwood Hall has been landscaped. An account of a boys experiences of living at the Orphanage between 1928 and 1933 can be found online.
Of the original buildings only the porters lodge off Knights Hill now remains, its curving Dutch gables, red brick with black diaperwork and mullioned windows echoing the design of the main 3 storey institution. The Arnold and Jane Gabriel Home was built on the Wolfington Road frontage of the orphanage in 1910; it was converted into a primary school in 2012, which now features a colourful modern extension to the original building.
The charity that operated the orphanage in West Norwood retains an echo of its previous location in its current name Norwood.
