"Birth Information"

About: Homerton University Hospital

Hi, I come from a Hindu background and i required my time of birth for religious reasons. My last resort to find this exact information was to contact my hospital. I was very disappointed to find that the hospital has without any confirmation destroyed all the records. I understand that hospitals are allowed to destroy records after 25 years but i am left with no way to find the time of my birth. The reason given for records being deleted in this electronic age was space saving. Shah
