until we found his death cert from 1981

There is no death recorded in 1981 but there is an Alexander Truelove death in the June qtr 1982 in South Glamorgan- no middle name and no birthdate.  GRO index shows age unknown

There is only one Stephen Truelove marriage in a likely time frame - 1907 in Warwickshire to Georgina Maria L Tyacke.  That Stephen only died 1949 so was alive when Alexander married in 1941

Only one son born to the marriage after 1911 when mothers maiden names were shown - 1913 - John T

Any occupation shown for Stephen on the 1941 marriage cert?

Who were the witnesses?

Sorry 1982 death
I have his results from the 1939 register and they don't really shed any light.
The Alexander Malcolm on the Scotland page is a possibility as he is illegitimate I suppose he could of been adopted out it shows his birthdate as March 22nd but the mod said his birth certificate is 21/8 would a new birth cert of been issued to adoptive parents then?
No occupation for his father and the witnesses to the marriage are relatives to Edna's

We have a letter from the MOD saying confirmation of birth date and place 21/8/15 Cardiff glamorganshire.
The 1945 electoral roll showing him living around the corner from a Frederick Truelove & my father has a very vague recollection of visiting a relative with him when he was about 4-5  in that area (my father was put into a children's home and his father visited him a handful of times)
Thank you for your help it is much appreciated

Hi

What's the significance of MOD? Ministry of Defence?

Children's home? What happened to his mother?

1945? Where?

We have a photograph of my grandad wearing an army uniform so my aunt some years ago wrote to them who sent a letter back with the confirmation of his date of birth details. My father & siblings were put into erdington cottage homes Birmingham and then my grandmother moved away and went on to have 3 more children who were put up for adoption, she later moved back and the children had contact with her.
The electoral register was Birmingham in 1945
