Kensington adoption
« on: Monday 11 March 19 03:31 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find my aunt's son who was adopted at birth. My aunt has passed away and had no other children.
He was born C W at St Mary Abbots Hospital in Kensington on 1950's. I understand that he was an only child and had no siblings. And I think his parents were in the spice trade.

Hi Margot

Welcome to RootsChat :)

RootsChat is meant for finding ancestors, rather than living relatives.

Personal details of any people known or thought to be living will be removed, in accordance with RootsChat policy, to avoid spamming and other abuses. So people here will be able to give you general tips and hints how to proceed, but not any concrete details.

You will also find more tips here:

Good luck,

Hi Margot

Welcome to Rootschat  ;D

Our guidelines for posting contains links for finding living people

http://www.rootschat.com/help/posting_guide.php

However, unless you know his name after adoption there is no way of finding him by the normal methods.

If you haven't done so already, register with the GRO in the hopes that he is looking for his birth family

https://www.gov.uk/adoption-records/the-adoption-contact-register

or here

http://www.adoptionsearchreunion.org.uk/default.htm

or here

The chatters here aren't trained intermediaries and adoptions were usually of a sensistive nature, any advice we give can only be general.

It might also be worth asking the adoptions team at your local council if they can give you any advice.
