My partner John is trying to trace his birth mother , Peggy Thompson, who was living at number 58 Grosvenor Avenue Long Eaton in 1957. Johns birth father, Leslie Thompson, was killed in a fall whilst working at the Castle Donnington Power Station in January 1957 and John was adopted soon after his birth the following May. We believe Peggy already had three children, a girl called Caroline or Carol who was around 12 years old at the time and two boys. We have spoken to residents who have lived on Grosvenor Avenue long term and who can remember the family but they think they moved to Coventry in the early 1960s. If any of your readers can remember the family or have any information, for example, if Peggy remarried and changed her name we would be most grateful.
You can contact us at or telephone 01623 427565.
Thank You
Marion And John
