Trying to find Brimelow

I am looking for my half brother who was born to a Margaret Brimelow of Penketh, who is sadly now deceased. I believe he was given up for adoption in 1956. I expect he would have been adopted by the Lancashire and Cheshire Adoption Society. I myself was also given up for adoption in 1958. Also i would love to hear from any members of the brimelow family from Penkith if at all possible. Thanks regards Diane Fletcher
