Is the T A registered in Hatfield in 1947 definitely the brother of J R? If so, then his BC should reveal his mother's first name.

I'll get a copy of Walter's Will to see if that's any help.

Kanskar,

Thanks, I've had a look but I'm afraid there does not appear to be any connection, but thanks again for your interest

Annette,

Whilst the situation at ScotlandsPeople it is deeply frustrating, thanks to Jon's work, sight of the Birth Certificate is much less vital now that father has been fully identified, which was 50% of the reason for my starting this thread.

Annette,

   I must admit that I have to agree with you. I just hope that my'credits' outlast the covid-19 hiatus

Jon,

   Great news; you've definitely found 'my' Thomas COOK. Thank you. The Royal Navy connection is the clincher. I'd tried the National Archives but to no effect. Well done.

Another point from re-reading the report. It states that "When (the elder boy) was visited at the end of September, 1960,.........)" That would be difficult if the family did not live at the given address.
