Hello, the name of the maternity hospital was ”Crossley,s”
If you go back a good way on this site you will find lots of information about it all.
As you will find the name was that of the man who started The Star Hall,later taken over by aThe Salvation Army after Frank Crossley’s death.
The site goes back to 2009,but there is a lot of info for you there. Best of luck. Viktoria.
PS,do ask again if you need more help.V

I telephoned the Salvation Army many years ago as I was born in this hospital and was searching for my birth mother but I was advised that all the records for the period around 1966 had been lost in a fire

Hi Kelly, I beat you by one year - 1947.  Where were your family stationed?  I think mine were at Idle but not really sure.  I was a bit young at the time!!   Welcome to Rootschat.   :)  R.
My parents were stationed at Pendlebury when I was born.
