I left Coventry at an early age when my parents emigrated. According to my birth certificate I was born in 1947 at 7 Park Road, Coventry. I see that a Victorian residence at that address was demolished and it is now a development site. Was it ever used as a maternity hospital or nursing home? I would appreciate it if anyone has any information. Rick L

Hi Airham, welcome to the site and I hope some one can help you with the information you are looking for. 7 Park Road which was called Queenswood has been mentioned in an earlier topic but maybe someone can help you with what happened to the property after David Cooke who lived there died in 1932. Cooke's of Coventry c1898

Hi Airham, Sorry this response is so long after your post. I too was born at 7 Park Road, in 1951. I have just found my Baby Book, which says I was born at The Hollies nursing home, with Dr Eric Kenderdine in attendance. We later lived opposite Dr Kenderdine in Earlsdon Avenue. So hope this info is useful to you. Best wishes Diane

My sister was born at the The Hollies in 1947. My baby book states that I was born at The Sunnyside Nursing Home in 1950. Does anyone have any idea where that was?

Thanks Midland Red, I now know exactly where I was born. I presume parents had to pay to have their babies delivered in these nursing homes, or were they funded by the NHS? Most babies would have been born at home in the 1940s and 50s unless there were complications.
