Hi, has anyone on this site know any information about a resettlement camp in the 1950’s onwards for Polish displaced people in the area of Camp Hill Estate, Nuneaton, Warwickshire, England.
I have recently been informed by a family member that my father was a Polish displaced person who was staying/living in a hostel based in Tudor Road/Ramsden Avenue Camp Hill Estate Nuneaton, Warwickshire in the mid 1950's. The only information I have at the moment is his name, Stanislav Bednarkrsky or Stanislaw Bednarski (not quite sure of the spelling) and that he moved to Kerseley in Coventry, Warwickshire after the hostel.
I put a request on Nuneaton memories social media site for information regarding a Polish camps/hostel in the Camp Hill area and the feedback confirmed there was actually a camp/hostel situated in Tudor Road/Ramsden Avenue which housed Polish displaced persons. I have looked on various websites to try and locate the camp/hostel but it's not registered.
I contacted the archive library in Nuneaton regarding the camp but they couldn't confirm a camp was situated there. They directed me to the Leamington Spa Polish Community Centre who were very helpful and advised me to contact the APC Polish Enquiries in Ruislip to see if my father had served in the Polish Forces under general Anders but they couldn't help because I have no provenance to confirm I'm his daughter or next of kin. My birth certificate does not name Stanislav Bednarkrsky or Stanislaw Bednarski as my father.
I have contacted the Salvation Army Family Tracing Service but they are unable to help me because I have no provenance to confirm that I am actually his daughter.
Any information regarding this camp would be appreciated.
