We believe our Mum was in Belle Vue, between about 1933, aged 10, on a daily basis, after her adoptive Mother died and then full time from about 1937, aged 14, after her adoptive Father died, leaving about the age of 17. Her name was Elizabeth (Betty) McCallum.
We have been in contact with Belle Vue to try to confirm this, as we are trying to find details of Mum's real family, however they state that the records they have for around that time, have been destroyed or damaged.
We have photo's of Mum and others in and around what we believe to be Belle Vue, however, Mum passed away in 1979, so obviously is unable to confirm the details we have. I would be happy to forward copies of these to you.
I would also like to hear from anyone else who had relatives at Belle Vue around that time or knew Sister Agnes, who I have been told, Mum was very friendly with and in fact travelled to London in the mid sixties to meet up with.
