Looking for Katie Jayne- unknown adopted name but birth name Thurlwell.
birth mother is Jayne Thurlwell (now Billington)- she has asked me, Celia Hubball, to try to find her.
Katie Jayne was born 4th April, 1987 at Leighton Hospital, Crewe, Cheshire. She was adopted by a couple called Mervyn and Heather. Mervyn was a joiner, this is the only information we have. Diocese of Chester dealt with the adoption.

Hi Celia.

Just asking before anyone else does! Has your niece contacted the diocese to see if they are willing to help? Or put her details on the National Adoption Contact Register:

Katie Jayne, clicking on Celia's name shows that unfortunately she is no longer a member here and can't be contacted by message ( which is what would normally be suggested).

I will send a private message to you , see "messages" at top of page, may possibly be able to trace Celia or Jayne herself on erolls

Some information sent, with usual advice to be discreet.

Well looking at the name it’s posslble to see siblings of Jayne and where the name Hubball come in

Her sister married an Ian Hubball

Also looking at Jaynes parents info it look like her dad is on the current electoral rolls still in Cheshire

Can pm the info if it wanted !

Shirley I have PM'd an address, ( Katie hasn't read the message yet) and also sent a couple of messages elsewhere to which I am awaiting reply. Just to ensure the person in question is aware that she may be contacted. PM me if you want to know who I've contacted :-)

I hope Katie has been advised to edit her post.
Far too much detail on there - open invitation to identity thieves.

Erika, the search is over which is great news :-) but I have advised via message that the info is edited now.
