There isn't always anything to indicate an aoption in the indexes. The cert would clarify matters

Purchasing his birth certificate would let you know if he was adopted or not.

Do you know if he was adopted? Could his name have changed?

Hello everybody,
my name is Christopher Patrick Kelly. Born: 14th March 1941, in Glasgow. I am searching for my younger brother, William Patrick Kelly. He was born: 3rd November 1948. 195 Hampstead Road, Islington, London. His mother was Catherine Kelly, m/s Robinson. I was placed in LCC Care homes in 1947.
I never met, or knew about William Patrick Kelly untill 2012.
Mother died Jan 1997, in a nursing home in Westminster.
William has two sisters who would love to meet him. (They live in Glasgow).
If anyone out there can help, we would be most gratefull
