Classification: Query
I am trying to locate my grandmothers birth parents. She was born on 2 December 1928 and named Barbara Weatherup by her mother, however she was an unwanted child for whatever reason and was given away. In 1930 she was brought to England by George and Alice Humpage and settled in Birmingham, Warwickshire as Joyce Barbara Humpage.

Very little is know about her paternal parents. Her mother was a Weatherup and her father is believed to have been local. Her family did know of her as they did try to communicate throughout the war and after however this was concealed from my grandmother.

She does not have a birth certificate which states who her paternal mother is, however in 1974 she did eventually receive a birth certificate showing she was registered in Toronto, Ontario. I do have a copy of this which can be provided but it does not provide much information.

My grandmother is reaching the end of her life, so it would answer so many questions she has about her identity should she find out information before she dies.

Your help with this matter is greatly appreciated.
