PM received and copied over with Paulines permssion

Hi Shirley, I assume Brearley was Winifred's maiden name. My mother gave me away to Winifred when I was two weeks old and she left her marital home in Rotherham in l944 and took me to Brighton. I have my ID card with these details on it. I have no other details I'm afraid.Regards Pauline.

How did you find out about her?

Is she named on a birth cert?

I am trying to trace any living relatives of Winifred Brearley who was living in Rotherham Yorkshire until l944 when she moved south to Brighton. Contact was then lost in the late forties. I have no other information
