Carleton Maternity Home - a Memory of Portadown.

I was a young midwife in Portadown from 1958 to 1959. I would like to hear from any 'old babies of that era' born in the Carleton Home. I was Nurse Mcmullan then. I much enjoyed that time and made many friends in the area.

Hello. I was born at 3am Saturday 13 June 1959. It would be lovely if you had been in attendance. I was christened William Mark but know by my second name Mark all my life.

Perhaps you should contact with the public record office Belfast.
email. proni@dcalni.gov.uk
They also should have the records you are seeking.

Sorry I do not know where the records are kept.
Probably in archives locally with the hospital trust or local hospital authorities.
The maternity Home was run under the doctor GP system. They had their records and also the Maternity Home had theirs.

Very interested to read your post. I would love to find out how to trace Carleton Maternity Home records. Am helping my cousin to trace his roots. He was born in this Nursing Home in October 1942. Would you know where records are kept?
