Have been searching a long time for brother and sister Harold 1899 Hilda 1900,they are the siblings of my mother in law Gladys.She was born 1905,and never met them,the mother Emily died in 1906,and Gladys was fostered,their Father Arthur on the 1911 census,was living alone in Ripponden,so between their birth and 1911,they seem to have disappeared,I have their birth certificates,and Gladys so longed to find them but has since died,it would be nice to find out qhat happened to them

Patricia, do you have the exact dates of birth of Harold and Hilda, it may help find an eventual death record?

It could be that they were also fostered out, or even adopted?
