House of Mercy - Horbury
My mother, Bessie Eileen Jones was sent from Herefordshire to the House Of Mercy at Horbury around 1926. She would have been 13 at this time. I have her baptismal record. It is a complete mystery why she was sent to Horbury although I understand it was a refuge for fallen women. Her father, William John Jones (known as Jack) came from a family called Prosser. Was there a connection? Could my Mother have been pregnant? If so do I have a brother or sister that I do not know. I would be grateful for any help.
