I am trying to sort out a few things connected with my family during the 1939 registration and wonder why a person connected with my father is described as an inmate of the Battle Hospital, Reading, I know her occupation was Domestic Servant and she gave birth to an illegitimate child in the November but why would she be described as an inmate?

Thank you

She might have been ill, a complication with the pregnancy perhaps. Was there a Mother and Baby home attached to the hospital?

I am not sure, all I know is that the child she had was thought to have been fathered by my father, He at that time was resident at Kingsbridge Cottages, Nine mile ride, Wokingham R D. with his wife and son. Rosemary Grey b 1916 was said to be their lodger having her first child to him in 1936 and no 2 in 1939, all were adopted I am told by another child from their relationship.
:eek:
