How to access Child Registers for orphaned children in Victoria

Hi, my grandfather was orphaned at a young age in Victoria in the late 1800's. I can see the Ancestry Indexes for Child Registers but have no idea how to access this register...I read a post about accessing the register but I could not get into it. My grandfather was Samuel Tucker and he was put into the care of Rose Hyland in Ballarat, his siblings also were taken in by Rose. I have RH1 Page 5,6,7,and 8 as reference,...can someone tell me what is recorded in these registers please

I think that you might need the Public Records Office Victoria (PROV) for these ... I'm not sure what "RH1 Page 5,6,7,and 8" are, but maybe some of the following links from the Ballarat books might help (Hopefully the attached links will work):

I've only added links to Ballarat books and duplicate Reg's, but let me know if you are looking for other names ...

I thought that the following might also be of interest because of their numbering:

And I just realised that "RH1" = "Girls Receiving House Book Vol. RH1", so you should have what you need now ...

Sylvia, thank you so much...was able to access all the files I needed and has given me an insight into when and why they were admitted and for how long as well as the foster person, Bridget Hyland.
