Frank Foster

My name is Alan Brunt, I am 47 years old, happily married with three children and living in Exeter, Devon. I am trying to make contact with Frank Foster, a doctor or male nurse who worked at St Margarets Hospital, Great Barr, Staffordshire in the late 1950s, whom I believe to be my natural father. The hospital specialised in the treatment of people with mental ill-health. I believe he met my mother Winifed Maud Brunt, whilst working at the hospital, they had a relationship and I was born out of this relationship on 17 February 1959. At the time my mother was married to William Henry Brunt. She and William lived at 110 Gainsborough Crescent, Great Barr, with their children Brenda, Victor and Linda. I have recently regained contact with Brenda and Victor, for the first time since 1960. I knew nothing of my father until Brenda told me his name and explained the circumstances of his and my mothers meeting. After being given this information, I made a number of searches on the Web. I found information about a Frank Foster, who specialised in mental health and in 2001 was the Chair of Walsall East Health Action Zone. I located a picture of him taken at that time - see attached. I have also found that a Frank Foster attended a HAZ event earlier in 2006, so is likely to be still contactable through that source. I would like to make contact with Frank but realise this could create difficulties for him and would therefore wish to do it discreetly. I am the Managing Director of a housing association in Somerset and in comfortable circumstances, so my only reason for making contact is to better understand my roots and to satisfy an understandable curiosity about my origins. This sense of curiosity has grown since I had my own children who are now 16, 14 and 10 years old. I would be grateful if you were to make contact with Frank on my behalf, to enquire initially as to whether he would be happy for me to be in touch with him. Can you please let me know if this is possible and if so what would be the next steps. Yours Faithfully, Alan Brunt
