I too am struggling with a William and Florence smith (who belong to a friend). They had a son called Bernard in 1910 in b'ham but  I can't find em in  1911.

Derbyshire / Maternity Home in Derby

Would anyone know anything about a Maternity Home in Derby or how you would go about finding records from it?

I have a birth certificate for a Florence Eva Houghton born 28th November 1906 at 'The Maternity Home U D' (don't know what the 'U D' is).  The registration districe is Derby in the sub-district of Derby etc..

The mother is my elusive Constance Florence Houghton formerly Letchford (and the father is J W A Houghton of 13 Dean Street Derby), but it's really any details on 'Constance' that I'm after and I was wondering whether maternity homes kept anything that might be useful that is now available.

I've just had a look on findmypast's site..  There is a Margaret Inman buried in St Peter & St Paul on 29 Sept 1833 age 54 (est yr of birth given as 1779).

I work just around the corner from St Peter & Pauls in Aston but I work shifts..  Next time I'm on an early shift (end of next week) I'll pop into the churchyard on my dinner break and see if I can find anything for her...  (unless someone beats me to it)..

...  incidentally, your George isn't the one born in Coventry c.1835 is he?...   if so, I have him on a tree I've been working on for a mate.

You can visit the Warwick Records office (in Warwick, not too far from the castle) and view the records, many of which are held on micro film.   I went there a couple of months ago to look at the Prisoner Records of my gt gt grandfather (who committed the crime of Bastardy!) and it gave me quite a few details about my gt gt grandmother etc and I was able to take a photocopy. 

You'll need to take some i.d. with you to obtain a Reader's Card -  details are on their website
