Grandad Alexander Malcolm Truelove DOB 21/8/1915
« on: Tuesday 01 March 16 18:29 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to find my grandad (deceased) I have his date of birth confirmed by the MOD but I can't find a birth certificate for him and I've put in searches using just his first names and just surname but I just can't find anything. Any advice or reason I can't find a birth certificate?
His name is Alexander Malcolm Truelove DOB 21/8/1915
A few years after my fathers birth he disappeared so my father has no memories of other relatives and nothing was heard until we found his death cert from 1981

There is no full match on Scotlands People births using Truelove but it shows one match in 1915 to a birth for an Alexander Malcolm.

Did he marry Edna Potter in Birmingham in 1941?

If so, getting the marriage cert to see who he names as father may help trace him back.
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Don't know if we are allowed to publish info from the 1939 Register, but you will find him on it  in Birmingham.
Best wishes, Judy :-))
