Welcome to the boards Nicola.

His Naval records for WW2 would still be with the MOD. This link tells you how to obtain a copy - free if his widow applies, or £30 otherwise

Use (or GR if you have that level of sub) to look for names of any siblings, entering Lowe as the surname and George as the mother maiden name. Use a wide year range, based on his parents marriage year.

If you don't know the year, look for it on freeBMD/GR. FreeBMD is what is says on the tin - Free!

Use the Search all trees function on this site (found under the Search button at the top of the page) to see if anyone else has the same names as you in their tree. Then you can send them a message. Try not to use the default 'May I see your tree' message as many people want more information before they do that, and may even not reply.

Im trying to trace any relations of Donald V Lowe. He was born 29th dec 1924, in birmingham. I believe his family lived in the west bromwich area of birmingham. His dad was called George V Lowe, and his mother Esther Lowe nee George. My grandad served in the navy, on the Newfoundland, but im unable to find any docs relating to him actually being on the ship. We also believe his parents moved to Australia, with his sister(s). Donald married my nan Ivy Lowe in 1949, and he sadly passed away n 1971. Would love to hear off anyone who may be related.
