Trying to trace any information on my grandmother b 16/5/1908 at 112 High Street, Sevenoaks. She was born to a single mother - Alice Mable Waghorn - the daughter of Police Sargeant William George Waghorn and Emily Bramley (29 Albion Place, Maidstone). She gave birth to my father William Albert Waghorn b 23/9/1927 at 230 High Street, Homerton London. She also was a single mother and both were admitted to the Hackney Workhouse on 4/10/1927 on transfer from the adjacent Hackney Hospital. My father was transferred back to the hospital on 10/10/1927, whilst his mother discharged herself (own request) on 29/10/1927 (from the Workhouse??). No nearest relative was given for Elsie with the entry reading "Friend - Miss J Cook 49 Tresham Avenue E9".
What I am after is any information about her life. This maybe hard as any possible cousins or friends would have passed on. Hoping someone has a relative that could shed some light. Thanks Kirsty.
