WOW!! Thanks Lyn  O0   (Pleased to say I wasn't too far off!) That's impressive.
I've just been having another look and gathering bits from across posts on more than one forum, including some interesting aerial photos. I might try sometime to bring all the Loveday Maternity images, links and info together on a web site.

Cheers,
Cal

My mother had an illegitimate child born around 1944 at Loveday St Hospital Birmingham. The family kept it a secret until many years after my mothers death, but it came out.
She was persuaded by her sisters to give this child up for adoption which she did. So how do I trace this child don't know the sex or name only the mothers name. He or she could even be my
full brother or sister. I was born in 1948. I was told that during this time Birmingham was being bombed and some mothers were transferred else where.

Hi Johnny

I don't know anything about this sort of thing, but we have posters on this forum who are well versed in this field. I think you might have to give them a little more information if you want them to investigate for you. This would be best done via the forums private messaging system which will not become available to you until you have made a minimum of five forum posts.

Though you are quite welcome to use the forum for the exchange of general information, but please try to keep any personal information  of living people to a minimum unless you have the express permission of the person to post it.

On my birth certificate it says my place of birth was 28 Loveday Street, Birmingham. Does anybody know if this was part of the maternity hospital in 1957?
