There was a steady stream of London women sent by their health authority to give birth at Cuckfield Hospital in Sussex in the 1940s-1950s. Just a thought for anyone hunting for a presumed London birth in this period and wondering about a Cuckfield registration.

My mother in law lived there and remembers the ladies taking walks round the village. Babies put up for adoption were also placed in a Cuckfield childrens' home, Horsgate House (now closed) from which she and her sisters fostered many babies until they were found permanent homes.
