Family of adopted Danny Weston - Croydon 1946

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Danny is looking for family. Adopted from Dr Barnardos children's home, and remained in Croydon until I left home. My Mothers surname was Weston, but this is all I know. If you can help please contact me. Thanks.

Do you have your birth certificate? That should give your mother's full name and also an address where you were born.

You could add yourself to the national adoption contact register

If you haven't already got your original birth certificate and adoption file you need to apply for it. The service is free, and it is the only way you will be able to move forward with your search - the application form is available here:

Good luck
