THE HAVEN, LINDEN TERRACE, PONTEFRACT
ADDED 16 MAY 2007
like to know if anyone has any recollections of The Haven Mother & Baby
Home on Linden Terrace, Pontefract, as I spent my first six months there
with my mother before I was adopted and went to live with my new parents
in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
mothers name was Kathleen Cave and the name on my birth certificate is
Gareth Cave born May 1957. As far as I know my mother spent about nine
went back there for the first time in fifty years to see what it looked
like and more importantly to see if it was still there. I asked a passer
by and she pointed out the house at the top of Linden Terrace as what
she remembers as the Haven.
gone on to find out that I have a brother and two sisters but
unfortunately my mother Kathleen died three years ago.
snippets of information will be very useful.
