Do you have Charles and Joan's marriage cert to know how old Charles was when he married?

Do you know who he remarried?

Mary and Joan's mother looks to be Lydia Goscombe. Mary was also registered under the name Mackie. Lydia married John H Mackie the same quarter Mary was born:

Marriages Jun 1929
Goscombe Lydia Mackie Halifax 9a 1001
Mackie John H Goscombe Halifax 9a 1001

She died the following year so this might explain why Joan and Mary were adopted.

Deaths Sep 1930
Mackie Lydia 26 Halifax 9a 441

Mary married under Hegarty AND Mackie:

Marriages Dec 1948
Hegarty Mary Walker Halifax 2b 1181
Mackie Mary Walker Halifax 2b 1181
Walker Frank Hegarty Halifax 2b 1181
Walker Frank Mackie Halifax 2b 1181

Perhaps she was adopted by the Hegarty family?

Looks like she was. Lydia's sister married a Hegarty:

Goscombe Georgina Hegarty Halifax 9a 718
Hegarty Thomas Goscombe Halifax 9a 718

Your best bet is to order his marriage cert. to get his age and occupation:

He didn't use his middle name when he married.

Look on FreeBMD.

There is a death for a Charles Alexander Callaghan in Halifax that could tie in to this birth:
