Manchester Lunatic Hospital, Cheadle

Has anyone had any success in gaining access to the hospital records for the Manchester Lunatic Hospital in the 1890's?. It is still operating as the Cheadle Royal, a private psychiatric hospita,l and according to the National Archives the Admission and Discharge and other pertinent records are still stored there. I have strong reasons to believe that my grandmother was born there, but as she was adopted when she was a few weeks old she was given the name of her adoptive parents. It is only by looking at the actual hospital records around the time she was born that there is a chance of identifying her true parentage. I have tried writing (with an SAE) and e-mailing but have not even had an acknowledgement. I would be grateful for any advice.
