Dunno - my granddad just seems to have been brought up by his aunt and uncle - never seen any evidence of any paperwork but that does not say that there wasn't any.

I would imagine that they went to a solicitor so that everything was as legal as it could be in those days.

My mother's youngest sister was brought up by a neighbour after her mother died when she was just six weeks old.

She has a solicitors letter giving details of the fact that she was to be brought up by this neighbour (although not adopted) and both her father and the neighbour signed this letter to say they both agreed to this.
