And the mystery begins.....Mary Agnes May - Rochdale

Hi All

I have been trying to help my dying uncle find his family history.. It is a complete mystery. He knows nothing about his mothers family at all.
His mother, Mary Agnes Tatterstall (nee May) (1896-1979) came to Australia in 1924 after her husband Herbert Tatterstall died. I have information from then to now but nothing before.

Mary had told my Aunt that she was abused as a child and that her picture is in the Tower of London??? This seems a bit bizarre but she had her facilties about her completly when she disclosed this to my Aunt.

I have some records until she was four than nothing until she shows up at what seems to be a girls home at 14.

Mary was born in Rochdale, Lancashire to parents, John May and Mary Ann Lyons?

Any help anyone could give me would be very appreciated

Kind Regards,
