The above named lady is my mum, my name at birth was Deborah sexton, my mum would be 82, if still with us, I am looking for any siblings as well as me. Mum is or was Irish. I do not want to panick anyone, and would not approach anyone. I just need to understand?

Lets hope subsequent children don't stumble across this then!

Where when were you born?

As the lady could easily be alive, you need to remove her actual DOB................before someone reports your post to GR

It was common practice in that era for Irish girls to travel to England to give birth, then return to Ireland as though nothing had happened, which must have been tough for them...........
