Is this your post?

Without wishing to pry, which year was he last in contact or living at the address you gave?

Assuming you are in contact with your mother, does she know anything about his parents or if he had siblings? They are sometimes easier to find than the person themselves

There are several articles about John Turner, counsellor. One says your father lived near to him on the John Clay Estate (2003).

Although his father resigned in 2003, would the phone number still work?

Don’t try unless your grandfather knows about you.

If the number has been reassigned, perhaps the local branch of the Labour Party could act as a go-between?

I think he resigned

Yes, but does the phone number still work? Is anyone in the local Labour Party still in contact?

How about your half brother? Assuming you know his name, he’d be old enough to use Facebook & other social media sites.

If you do track him down, just say your mother & his father used to be friends & your mum would like to catch up.

There is a John Michael at number 112 at the road you've given. Lived there over 15 years. He is listed on the electoral registers there until 2016. No other occupants listed.

Have you tried writing to neighbours?

andrew Report 13 Dec 2017 22:09

The number was his father's home number and he picked up so thank you very much for your help I can say it enough
