I am trying to help someone find their birth mother - they thought my aunt may have been the right lady, but I don't think it adds up. What they have is information from an immigration document from England to Canada - the child went with both parents but the mother left and was never heard from again - it was believed she went back to England, but nothing is certain.

On the immigration form, as a contact for the child, there is listed :

Mr K R Kemp (grandfather)
22 Fountains Crescent
Southgate
London

The mother was listed as Julia Anne Kemp age 20 in 1967 when she gave birth to a baby boy names Isaac Kwesi Tandoh or Kemp - Feb 1967 at a Maternity Home in 11 Alexandra Park Road, Muswell Hill. The father was black - it was believed this may have been motivation to leave the uk with him due to it being frowned upon?

She was listed as a secretary and living at 47 St James Lane, Muswell Hill, Haringey.

If anyone can figure out the whos/whats/wheres, I'd love to hear from them.

Thanks.

P.S. Religion on immigration form was listed as Methodist - in case that's of any help.
