You would need to know their full names and an approx birth date start a search.

Are they connected to you ? if so so details of the connection would help too.

What is your connection to these people?

Are we to assume they were a married couple, and not siblings?

Yes they are a married couple and don't have full first names only initials. They adopted a son in 1946.

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 19 Sep 2012 10:47

Are you sure he was adopted cos this couple had a son in 1947

see FreeBMD for his name

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 19 Sep 2012 10:48

do you have the adopted sons name?

Susan

Susan Report 19 Sep 2012 11:30

Philip and yes adopted in June 1946

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 19 Sep 2012 11:38

when did Phillip marry. His marriage cert should name his father so you can double check the names we have found.

We have no way of knowing if we have found the right couple .

The name of the informant on one of their death certs may help

Susan

Susan Report 19 Sep 2012 11:56

Sorry have no more info yet. Was hoping it was an alternative route to finding the son as all other routes have failed due to lack of information. Appreciate the help though. Thanks.

Reggie

Reggie Report 19 Sep 2012 14:46

Why are you looking for Philip? Please give only an outline...nothing personal, as this board is not secure, and privacy issues must be considered.

Was Philip the child's birth name? Or his adopted name?

If you think the people found are correct....buy the more recent of the death certs, for info about the person who registered the death

Susan

Susan Report 19 Sep 2012 17:48

Impossible to give an outtline on an open board as no way round without giving personal issues. that is why so careful to give nothing away.
Yes Philip is adopted name.
Appreciate the help so far.

Hi, have been trying to find links. Yes the couple is correct. Yes found they had another son in 1947. Found a Denise Lightfoot, d-in-l registered the later of the two parents to die but can't establish a link still with Philip E. How do I find out if they had any more children? Have sent for a copy of the Will incase that can give anything further?
All your previous help was great thanks.

Did you try and contact Denise. her address at the time should be on the death cert for Stanley.
