My dad has been reunited with his sister who was adopted ❤️❤️

I'm hoping that by bumping this topic someone might be able to help me find his dad. Although I think I'm clutching at straws

That is great news, pollypringle. Thanks for the update  :)

Just having a quick re-read. Did we ever discuss this Frederick Truelove?

Frederick Guy TRUELOVE
Birth date 5 Nov 1893   
CARDIFF - 8B/723
Died 4th Qrt 1973

Probate reads: Frederick Guy Truelove, of 3 Waungron Road, Llandaff Cardiff died 24 Dec 1973. Probate Llandaff 5 March 1974. 6095.

There is a birth in Holborn, London that fits: Frederick Guy Truelove 4th Qrt 1893 - Holborn 1b/707

Two possible marriages for a Frederick G Truelove. One in 1918 (Rosser) and one in 1919 to a Gladys E Surtherland. Can't easily see children from either of these marriages. Probable death for Gladys in 1975:

Gladys Elizabeth Truelove   
Birthdate: 10 Nov 1891   
S Glamorgan 28/1650
Death 1st Qrt 1975

Thank you Monica 😊 I'm not quite sure how Frederick would fit in.
 We have found that grandads body was released to a Mr Cosslett (I won't provide first name because I'm not sure if he was living) then my aunt said she has a photo of him in his army uniform spand the name Cosslett written on the back they were living in Wales , so he must have some sort of connection to them, we just can't find out how. It's so frustrating 😞

Fred is on the 1939 with his wife Gladys so the 1919 marriage is the correct one.
