More info on Curious Fox post:

red mail Robinson family jarvis brooke
Hi,can anyone remember the robinson family who lived in 'smugglers cottage',Jarvis Brooke, around 1950..mother rose ellen,children,michael,paul ivan,rose,richard,basil edwin,george?In 1957 they moved away.We believe michael was sent to prison for 9 mths..what happened to him after,we still hope he is alive,but despite trying,cannot locate him.Also,does anyone know what happened to Paul?The ages amongst the kids varied and none of them can remember as some lived away by then and some were too young.Paul was last seen at smugglers cottage,and possibly the next house further up the road which they moved to for a time.We believe michael and paul both went into care for a period,but think they both came out.There is a very good chance that michael and paul will still be alive as michael was born in 1936 and paul born 1944..please help,siblings and family desperate to be reunited.Anything,anyone can remember could really help no matter how small it seems.Thanks,Dawn.

Children were born from 1913 to 1947
First one
Births Jun 1913
Robinson Jean I Lewry. Wandsworth 1d 1185

Marriages Jun 1912
Lewry Annie E Robinson Wandsworth 1d 1368
Robinson John G Lewry Wandsworth 1d 1368

But different Christian names

Edit so completely coincidental of the same surname combinations

Though a 1947 birth for this couple was a bit late as she was born in 1893

Aha! Found it:

Marriages Jun 1932
Lewery Rose E Robinson Brentford 3a 411
Robinson George H B Lewery Brentford 3a 411

Not that it helps find Michael.

A tree on Ancestry (in fact, several trees) says George Henry died in 1953 .

Rose remarried in 1958, to George Glenn, and she died in 1998 in Gorleston, Norfolk.

Apparently Rose and George Glenn had had a son in 1947, born in Norfolk, and registered as Robinson. That son died in 2011.

Presumably Rose and George Henry split up around 1947, which would be why Rose and the children were at Smugglers Cottage without George Henry, if I'm reading the Curious Fox post correctly.
