Locating adoption records

You can use this database to find out where adoption records might be held by searching for a home (maternity, mother & baby, shelter etc), organisation or local authority involved in the birth or adoption, or a staff member who worked in one of these homes or organisations. The results will guide you to the most likely holder of the adoption records, and will provide full contact details so that you can make further enquiries.
