hello, i was also born in crossley hospital in May 1951 but i'm not sure if it was called star hall at the time. I tried the images link but it didn't return any result. I wonder if a record exists of babies born there? Anybody know?

Woould it now say on your birth certificate, where you were born?


What year are you talking about for your map?

I too was born in Crossley Hospital in 1948. My father was in the band and was the YP Band master. I was in the band along with my brothers.

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.

Another one born there but no Sally Army links!  1950 - t'was a very good year  ;D

15 Mitchell Street I believe

In fact my mother says the nurses were not very nice to her and she used to quote their words to her 'Okay, you've had one, you know what to do, get on with it!'   :o

Hi,
Newbie here but had to reply as I was (aparently) born at Crossley Hospital in 1959. My mum died though and that is where the paper trail ends.
I contacted the SA in London and they have no records of me or my mother being there.
That being so, I am now more interested in the history of the people who went through the system there and hearing their stories of the experiences they had around the time. I am sure my mother was there at some point but can't be sure I was born there even though it says so on my birth cert.
Royd, I am based in Maidenhead.
