Ormsby Villiage Records

I'm looking for anyone who can give me information about the Carter children at Ormsby Villiage. My grandfather and his siblings Althie and Irene were orphans there along with a brother and I think another sister. About 1926-1942 or so. Unsure about exact years. All I know is that all of them were sent there because their parents were killed. My grandfather joined the army and served during WWII at about the age of 17 I think.

I am hoping to find some records indicating who their parents might have been and retrieve the names of my other great aunts and uncles etc. If anyone is still alive today that remembers them or knows how I can go about finding birth records for them it would be great. Not knowing exactly when my grandfather was born or where makes it hard to retrieve these things via normal avenues. They were born in a rural area also and I'm not sure records were even kept back then on a regular basis.
