Rose Report 2 Jul 2022 11:11

Carl Clifford Andrews born in Newham

Christopher John Andrews

The boys were adopted when they were 2/3 years old by the Baker family

Mother was Dawn Swift
Father was William Andrews

I heard they moved to Belfast Northern Ireland I am not sure if they are still there. My lead has gone cold.

I shall be very grateful if there is anyone who has Irish records that can help

Thank you

Sent PM with info and usual warnings.

Rose - at the very least, please remove the dates of birth from your post. [ Thanks! Done. ]

Do you wish actually to make contact?

Would they be aware of you?

They may not wish the fact of their adoption to be made public

Why not just ask for current whereabouts using current names?

Rose may not know if the boys Christian names were changed.

‘Modern’ records are not available on line(GRONI), the most recent being deaths over 50 years ago.

If you are a direct relative then you may be able to add your details to the adoption registers (England) so they can contact you if they access the same record.
