    Without help from other people on this forum I wouldn’t be one step closer to finding the answer to my question so it is only right to say a big thank you :-) I’ve got a bit of a challenge on my hands so I’m very grateful! Have a lovely weekend! Charlotte

    Thanks for your reply. I don’t know who he is...do you know how long he was living there by any chance?
  8. Hello, I am trying to find out who lived at 327 Perry Road 1953/1954. Apparently the Dilks family resided there in 1949. Would anyone know how long they lived there please? Many thanks, Charlotte

    Hi, Thanks for your reply - yes that’s them. Rita had my mum in 1954 and she was adopted. There’s no info about who the birth father was so I’m hoping I can find someone who knew Rita at the time who might remember something - I know it’s a long shot but worth a try!

    Thanks for replying. She had a brother called Ken and 2 sisters called Kathleen and Eileen (they have all passed away now). I know she worked at Joseph Camm Farms then later on Rampton Hospital. Her occupation on my mum’s birth certificate was short hand typist - she did a secretarial course in Nottingham apparently. Not sure about where she went to school, I’ll try to find out. I’m not sure how long she was in Basford for, I know she moved to Retford at the end of the 50s/start of the 60s.
  13. Hi, I’m looking for people who knew my grandma, Rita Hebden, in the 1950s. She passed away last year and I’m trying to piece together information about her life. I’d be so grateful if anyone could help me. Thanks, Charlotte
  14. Hello, My mum was born in Nottingham City Hospital in 1954 and was put up for adoption. She tracked down her birth mother (Rita Ashton née Hebden, 1934-2017) and is looking to piece together her past around the time of my mum’s birth. The address on the birth certificate is 327 Perry Road, Basford. I know it’s a long shot but I don’t suppose anyone might know/know someone who knew Rita Hebden at this time? Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Charlotte
