Hi, have you checked out the 1911 census in searching for Rose? There are a number of Rose's around this time, although not in the same area. Did Rose have any other children? If she died before 1991, and she was still living in 1939, you can trace her through the 1939 register. Are there any additional details on the birth certificate which could give clues?

A Rose A McManus married Arthur Frost in Newcastle in 1917.  Did your father have any half siblings?

There is also a Rose Mcmanus b1870 d1914 in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne district. It may be worth ordering this death certificate to see if they are one and the same person. Further records seem to reveal that this was misspelt, and she was actually born Rosa, not Rose, however; she was christened and born 1868 to Catholic parents.

I expect that Tyne and Wear Archives would have them but all I can see on their online catalogue is about the architects.  Perhaps you might be better at searching than I am

Hi

Was your father subsequently adopted or was he raised by Rose?

What other info do you have about her apart from her name?
