Elizabeth was my Grandmother, who died one week before i was born in 1953,i learned from this fantastic site that she was put in a home for Waifs and Strays in Haslingden,as her mother passed away,she was 15 yrs old,last night after some researching i learned also that her sister Jessie may also have been put in the Workhouse,so when i say this has been a roller coaster of emotions it certainly has,even though i didnt know these relatives, i was very upset to discover these facts,makes me realize, just how lucky i am to still have my mother, going strong at the age of 91years.There must be some relatives of the CORFIELD FAMILY out there in Manchester or anywhere,i do hope i find them ,because non of this makes sense,my father did have a mum and dad, EVEN THOUGH HE WAS AN ONLY CHILD some relatives must have been around then. Its all a HUGE mystery to me because i have quite a few relatives on my mothers side, that i am in close contact with, im hoping that someone out there will respond, or even direct me in what to do next,saving me from once again putting all my notes in a cupboard again for another 12 months, the same as what i did last time.
