Please can anybody help
I am trying to find info about a relative born in Plymouth who was sent to Chorley Detention Centre Lancashire in 1919 and then to Ford House Plymouth in 1921. She died 1930 at the age of 26 and I have her on a 1911 census living with her parents. Are there any records available that would give me any info about this person.
