I am looking for anyone that Might be related to Orville Meeson. My father Colin Meeson was his brother.

If you look under "search" at the top right of screen and then click on "search all member trees" and put in Orville's name you will see that apart from yourself and someone called Colin, there is someone called Stephen who has Orville in his tree. You can send him a private message by clicking on "find out more".

There are two marriages for Orville Meeson on Findmypast, the latest one in 1974 in Middleton, Lancashire with 4 children from that marriage. Are you aware of these births?

There were 5 children from his first marriage. The last one in 1963 and the first child from his second marriage in 1967.

It was 1931 Shirley, so sadly that seems to be his death.

People can't post info on here about living peple - contravenes site guidelines - and GDPR.

But you can follow through on the info about births and look for the children on the Electoral Roll on FMP

One, at least is on the current edition, so you'd have an address to which to write
