Happy Birthday Mom


, , ,

Janet Doreen Phillips, nee Taylor.

Today would have been my mom’s 67th birthday. She was born 13th August 1945 in the Sorrento maternity hospital in Moseley, Birmingham. She was adopted by Dorris Ada Taylor, nee Teiger and John Herbert Taylor not long after she was born.

She married my father, Michael Phillips, in 1964 and I came along in 1969 followed by my brother Adam in 1973.

My mom passed away in October 2006 after a long seven year battle with breast cancer which she bravely bore.

Dear Ms North

Thank you for your enquiry that has been passed on to us by the coroners office.

I am afraid that inquest papers for this period have not survived.

You may find a report of the hearing in local newspapers. We hold newspapers on microfilm and you are welcome to contact us to arrange a visit. Otherwise, we offer a paid research service, I have attached a form

Yours sincerely

Matt Skidmore
