Hi,
It is probable that your relatives are still alive so I think admin should have censored your post, however, 217 Horton Road might well have been St Luke's hospital.

I contacted Bradford Council after my initial post. They were extremely helpful. Unfortunately though a number of records from the late 1920s to early 1930s were destroyed in a fire which included my fathers as he was born in 1927. Hope everyone else is more successful.

Yes dave I looked up the date an address and I think at the time it was st Luke's hospital but all the places have been knocked down. I'm from Birmingham so have no idea of how to go about finding my nan as my mum was taken away from her at age 5 and taken abroad she came back in her late teens...

You need to remove the names of all those that are possibly living from your posts.  ;)

There was a home for mums on Queens Road in Manningham called Waddiloves Hospital for women.  The building is still there and used by the NHS.  Thought the info it might be of interest
