Maternity Hospital Causway Ln Leicester
« on: 20:18:09, 22/01/17 »
 Hi;  My birth certificate lists place of birth as Causeway Lane, Maternity Hospital, Leicester. I have not been able to find any reference to such a place. However I note that Causeway Ln is very close to East Bond St, Westcotes perhaps? If so it seems reasonable to assume that this was the place. The year was 1942, war time. My mother had been evacuated to Leicester. Presumably because the city was less likely to suffer the attention of the German Luftwaffe than South London.
Anyone with info I would greatly appreciate it

My mum was also evacuated to Wayside from London's East end , I was born in Oct 1942. I found a photo of the old house a long time ago, cant find it again. If anyone has a photo , would be nice to see it again .

Snowman,  I think you where born at what was called BOND STREET MATERNITY< now a tax office building on Causeway Lane. This I know as I trained at Bond Street in 1968/69 as as midwife.  We where told that the hospital was made up of several buildings. A pharmacy/three cottages and the entrance of the Coal Board office.  No wonder that I walked passed it when I went for my interview.

Hope this is some use to you.

Hi Snowman,
I was also born at the Maternity Hospital in Causeway Lane, one year before you. You are right. It is the same place as East Bond Street. I managed to find a photo of it

Just  Google 'Causeway Lane Maternity Hospital' under the IMAGE tag and you should be able to see several photos.

[Hi, I noticed on my Birth Certificate that my birth was entered in the Maternity Hospital in Causeway Lane. Actually I was born in the ambulance on way to the hospital back in 1941 (evacuated from London during the war). My mother told me of the main man in charge wanted to buy me and she freaked out, maybe he was just joking, but a good story all the same. I was curious to look for the hospital but it looks as if it has changed over the years. I was hoping to see the precise picture of it but to no avail.
