Do you have your adoption file and your birth certificate? It will list your birth mum's details.

These are the details of the birth certificate. You need to order it to get information about your birth mother.

Brian A Paine
Mother's Maiden Surname: Paine
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1964
Registration District: Maidstone
Inferred County: Kent
Volume Number: 5b
Page Number: 1150

Have you read the guidance at the top of the Find Living Relatives board?

where can I order a birth certificate please ,im new to this!!


patchem Report 10 Sep 2013 17:32

This is the official site for certificates - others charge more so do not use them:

I have given you the volume and page numbers.

Information about births, marriages and deaths can be found for free on free bmd, but that 1964 birth does nor show as free bmd does not yet have full coverage.

Your adoption file should have details, have you applied for that also?

You can order certs from here £9.25

How do you know your birth name if you do not have a birth cert or adoption file?


Unknown Report 10 Sep 2013 17:46

my mum now knew my birth name and told me recently as she wanted me to have all info that she knew !!!

If a child is fostered before an application is made to adopt then the potential adoptive parents have the full name of the child in their a birth certificate isnt always needed. by an adoptee to know a birth name.

Buy your birth cert to find out your mother's forename(s)

Add yourself to the national adoption contact register...........

And be aware that your birth mother's current family may not know of your don't try to make contact with her directly, even if you do find out where she is now
