tracing birth family

Hi I'm trying to find my birth parents after recently accessing my birth records. The adoption agency are searching on my behalf but not having any luck.
I was born in Liverpool in 1972 but both my parents were Irish. My birth father was a marriedman in Ireland but left his wife to be with my bith mother. After my adoption they moved to London and were last known to be living together in Finsbury Park.
Any help or advice would be really gratefully received.

Have you looked for a marriage for them?

Where did your info about Finsbury park come from? Its not often that info like that is added after an adoption has taken place.

Were you an only one?
