Oops he he :-S

Did you manage to see the pictures?



brummiejan Report 16 Jul 2012 17:41

No - where are they?


Julia Report 16 Jul 2012 19:03

Oh no sorry, will try again.

I have some more information which may be important! I have just spoken to my dad, he said that Grandad had brought his other daughter into their conversation one day whilst being the pub together, he said that my Mum had another sister and that he had wanted to marry her Mother but she did not want to marry him and that he met my nan shortly after. He said his girlfriend was from the Norris Green area of Liverpool, which is not far from West Derby. My Dad could not remember any names but said Grandad found out that she had had the baby girl, but we still don't know if he made contact. My dad also thinks the baby was born late 1950's early 1951's, in the Norris Green or West Derby Area.

May have to wait until my husband comes home to add these pictures!

Thanks again for your time.


(update comment thanks to Kingsmill)

Does your father know if the girlfriend was married by the time of the baby's birth?


Julia Report 16 Jul 2012 20:02

Hi patchem,

No, I'm sorry he doesn't know.

Hi Kay, thanks for this, it's driving me mad!

Thanks Jax I thought that link didn't work - here it is again

The first photo is my Grandad as a young man and the second one with his west derby weight lifting team. Please ignore the rest of my certificates and photos as they not related.

"he said that my Mum had another sister and that he had wanted to marry her but she did not want to marry him and that he met my nan shortly after"

surely her mother :-S
Found when checking if the Mill Road house is still there

Hi Kingsmill,

That's for this :-S I have now updated my comments.

So sad to think of all the woman and baby's that must of died! I've looked into this hospital thanks to your link and it was rebuilt and continued to be used as a maternity hospital after the bombing. She may still have been born there? or maybe at the next closest hospital (still unsure as to where this would be).

Thanks you again,

Also if the mother was unmarried she may have been sent to a mother and baby home out of the area?


Julia Report 18 Jul 2012 17:19

Your right Jax, I will look into this. I'm also thinking it's a strong possibility that she married the policeman before the birth as she could have married my Grandad to save face as they say, believe it was very frowned on in them days. I wish I knew!!! Her choice, Police man or barrel delivery man?!?
