Hi

It looks as if they've dropped the SVP from their name.  I got to this from the SVP site .

This is the list of houses outside London, so it's not there, so you could try ringing one of the Lancashire ones in case they've amalgamated and then write when you know, or link the London link at the bottom and ask them.

Hopefully, they will know where to go if nowhere on here does.  Either that or Salford Diocesan Archives, or maybe it's been taken over by the state like my Alexian Brothers hospital at Moston.

I hope you find something.

Best wishes

Emms

Hi Tessie

You're welcome!

I just hope you get somewhere with it.

Let us know how you get on, or you can pm me via the button to the left on my posts.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do.

Best wishes

Hi, my birth mother was sent to the mother and baby home in Broom Lane (think it was 67) in 1966.  I was born in sept 66 and adopted in early 1967.  I traced her when I turned 18 and we attended a support group for a short time, for mothers who'd had thier children adopted. One of the other mothers had attended the same home 10 years later and I think it had closed soon after this.  It was run by Catholic nuns and I'm sure my mum would have more memories if you're interested, get in touch and I'll get her to post on here.  All the best.  :)

All I can say is thank God that home and all the other homes for unmarried pregnant girls have disappeared.  Although, fortunately, I didn't have to go into such a home I was despatched in disgrace from my home to stay in a different town with a divorced lady and her 2 young children,  until such time as I had my illegitimate baby and left her behind for adoption.

We are now back in touch, but I lost 45 years of her life which I can never get back.

The main thing Lizzie, is you are now in contact and god willing, you will have many more years together.
In this case, looking to the future is more important than looking at the past.

You are right of course, but my daughter from my marriage doesn't want to know her half-sister, which makes things very difficult.  Before she traced me, I had never told anyone because of the disgrace etc. etc. even my husband and children.  My husband was totally unphased and took me to Ireland to meet her as soon as I told him.

Fortunately, my sons are more like their dad about the whole thing and one of them came over to meet her, when she visited me before Christmas, so that was nice.
