So Alberta if Marie's mother doesn't know a great deal about, it was obviously all arranged by Marie's grandparents. I don't suppose either of them are contactable are they, because they must know more.

Hi Phil ,what you say about permission for your baby to be adopted is true but every baby has to be registered by its birth parents/parent and that record is still on the GRO records for ever  and the birth certificate is available to whoever requests it.Often it has an extra number or letter on it to signify that the child has been adopted.
As you say in 1959 the courts would be involved in the adoption.especially as this was a hospital birth to an underage girl.



Once adopted the new parents do not re register the birth but  are granted a new short  birth certificate  via the adoption agency through the courts with new name and original birthdate and birthplace ,this does not have any information about the birth family, this new certificate is not listed on GRO records but on an adoption record that is very difficult to gain access to (unless you are making a TV programme,lol)

Alberta


Do not adopted parents re-register their adopted child in their name, and the old records closed and can only be reopened on the instructions of the child when reaching the age of majority. Also surely Marie's mother or grandmother/father would have had to give permission for the child to be adopted unless there was some sort of a traceable court order? I don't think that as late as 1959 children could be taken from their family without the courts being involved.

Marie , I do not know how this can happen because the place where your baby is born also informs the authorities.


I know this because when I had my first son in 1963  my husband went to register him the next day and the Register office hadn't been sent the paperwork by the midwife.


You may have made enough posts now to message me. Alberta
