My first post. I am trying to research My mothers family, a sad story right at the start but I suppose not uncommon.

My mother was born 1917 registered in Gt Yarmouth (Norfolk) her mothergave her address as (10 Row 93) which relates to the quite famous Row houses of the Town. For some reason my grandmother handed my Mother over to be raised by her Mother ( MY G Grandmother) and my mum never heard or saw her mother again from what she told before she passed away.

Unfortunately there isn't much for me to go on my mum B/C except my grandmothers name Mildred Knights and the address in the Rows. I have no age, place of birth or anything, there are no relatives that I know about at all.

My Mum could recall living around the Garvestone area of Norfolk (Near Dereham) with her Grandmother only, which would have meant her grand father being missing for whatever reason; and a move away from the Coastal area.

I am not sure where to start searching or inquiring
