Beaufort Rd, working boys' home?


master brummie
In 1911, my great grandad Joseph Rosenberg was resident at 55 Beaufort Rd; the other residents were predominently 16/17-year old boys, and judging by their surnames, also Jewish. The head of the household was Arthur Lewis and his wife Rachel's occupation was 'Matron of Working Boys' Home'.
What I'd like to ask, is whether anyone knows if this house in Beaufort Rd was a working boys' home? (Census image attached)
Any info would be gratefully received.1911BeaufortRd.jpg

The 1912 Kellys just lists Arthur Lewis as resident as if it was a private residence.
