Hi all, I was just wondering if any one out there, could help me.
My father who has past now, was fostered at two years of age his name William Thomas, with his sister Hilda.
I have his birth certificate and it gives the address as number 5 Oliver Place, Birkenhead.
Mother’s name Sarah Damen Married name Thomas. This would be a long time ago now, 1926 .
We can find no trace of him, we know he had other brothers and sisters, but who they were and why my dad and his sister were fostered we don’t know, any info would be good thanks

The following are very likely but without seeing certification at this stage they can only be looked at for consideration.

Marriage, 1914, Weymouth, Sarah Damen/Albert Thomas.

The following are children registered in Birkenhead between 1914 and 1940, with the surname, Thomas and mothers maiden name, Damen.

William, 1916,
Hilda, 1919,
Gladys, 1922,
May, 1923,
William A, 1926,
Frederick G, 1927,
Elsie, 1919.

That is sad, looks like Sarah died giving birth to Elsie having just become a widow then Elsie died a year later.

I wonder who the Owens were, being buried in the same grave, very intriguing,
Is Flaybrick cemetery still around, would love to visit the grave.
I didn’t know a lot about my fathers family, but the little bits I knew, you have confirmed, seems they had a sad life, his family.
I wonder if any descendants are still alive
