I have just found out that I too was born at The Beresford Nursing Home on 4 May 1956 to Daphne Woodman (nee Parfitt). I have no idea who my father was save that his name was Tony and he came from Bristol. My mother died in 2002 and my adoptive father in May this year (when I found out). It was a huge shock. Just wanted to sympathise really. Anyone know waht happened to the nursing home?

Hi, we came across your message quite by accident last night, and what a co-incidence - I live in Vardre Road, Clydach and my husband works in INCO (The Mond). Im sorry that I cant be of any help directly to you, because maybe the surname Arnold was changed via marriage etc (my husband does know of an Arnold once working in the Mond). I do feel for your plight because I am in a similar situation but longing to find out about my Father.
I couldnt beleive it when I saw your message, dont worry if you dont want to keep in contact but it would be nice, maybe I can be of some help to you.
Best wishes Angela

I was born on 9th May 1956 at Beresford Nursing Home Uplands. I did manage to trace my birth mother through the organization Norcap. They were extremely helpful and are worth contacting. Unfortunately my birth mother does not want any contact. Hope that you are more successful.
