Thank you for your time. The question regarding why my mother did not receive any payment, that I do not know. I was born in a convalescent home in Gilsland and my mother died from TB, in a TB hospital at a place called Blencathra in Cumbria. I was taken back to Whitehaven Cumbria where my mother was born and bred. I did not know my grandparents, who passed away many years ago. I do have certificates of my grandparents and my mother. I was led to believe my birth father did belong to Whitehaven, but no evidence, or know where to start, especially when his name was not on my birth certificate. The only info is the court records as I have told you previously. The money is not as important as finding any family that my father may have had, and I may have half brothers or sisters.
I do emphasise, that if I did find any information, that I would take advice before attempting to make any contact with any relative.
My only thoughts were, if a summons to court was issued, did the courts have an address to serve it, and I am uncertain if there were
solicitors acting on behalf of my parents. I would have thought that
the courts would have a main records office in the UK, which details
of cases would be sent to in case local courts misplaced local records.
I will gladly supply you with info that you may need, if you think it will help.
