Looking for my birth mother. Believed trained as a nurse in Wales at the Royal Gwent Hospital prior to giving birth to me in Bristol, at Mount Hope in june1964, I was called Sarah. Lily's mothers maiden name is possibly Alderson.

Please don't phone. Putting people on the spot tents to make for knee jerk reactions.

Write a letter, post it and give people time and space to think of a reply. You may get a better response that way

You must bear in mind that Lily's family may not be aware of your birth, so you must be very careful about what you write...............

Why don't you try to contact Christine, who has Lily in her GR tree.

BUT.................be careful about what you say. She may be equally unaware of your existence.

Don't refer to Lily as your mother until you've done some groundwork..............
