I am trying to locate the family of my grandmother. Her brother Thomas Bird was the harbour master at Cardiff just after WW11. Also, all of the siblings, 4 girls and 1 boy, were put into some kind of army "home" or orphanage in the area about 1896/7. Really could use some help as I cannot find any of their births on record, so I cannot go any further with our ancestry. If anyone knows the family or the name of the home/orphanage could you please post the information?
Thankyou so much

Hi Tracy,
My Gran's name was Catherine Mary, I think she was the oldest, then Thomas, Florence, Nancy and Dorothy who also live in the Cardiff area where I think she died fairly young.. Florence went to the U.S.A. and Nancy went to Canada. I would appreciate any help with this, thanks.
