My grandma has mentioned the mother and baby home, but this was Yardley towards Acocks Green near the cemetrey. She went there to have her first baby during the war. The baby caught an infection but sadly passed away. I may be wrong but I dont think they are the same as the Yardley Green Sanitotium.

Hi there to all who have contributed
I've just found an old photo taken around 1962 at Yardley Green Sanatorium with myself (right) and Noreena (left). If anyone recognises her I'd love to hear.
Regards, IvyIvy and Noreena.jpg

I have a few photos of my great aunt (Dorothy "Dolly" Cooper) in the sanatorium in the early 1920's with her friends and nurses. She was there as a patient with what she used to call her TB knee. She mentions nurses Johnson and Davey on her photos.

It was between the 1924 and 1932 Kellys directories. The electoral roll does not list it in 1930, but does in 1932. Therefore it is reasonable to say between 1930 and 1932

Thanks for that. The only Yardley Road I have ever known runs from the Swan Island to Acocks Green station.
