    Hello
    My name is Chris Lund and I am emailing on behalf of my wife Louise Lund who was born in Reading in 1964. We are looking for information on the Dolwood nursing home where my wife was born, being adopted she has little information on her early years but was born at the Dolwood nursing home and we believe might have had a twin. We have tried to research the nursing home and believe it no longer exists but any inform regarding this matter particularly where any old records may be kept we be gratefully recieved.
    Thanking you in antipation
    Chris Lund

      Hi Chris, Thank you for your email. Dellwood Hosptial closed in 2004 (it was Dellwood Maternity Home then a GP Elderly Care unit). It’s records are held by Reading Borough Council Registrars Office. Their telephone number is 01189 373533. It would be best to speak to them to see if they can assist.

      Hope this helps,
      Vicki
