I have a father in law called Cecil Douglas Loveridge born 1920 who married between 1938 and 1950 and lived in Northumberland UK. His wife (possibly maiden name Allan or Thompson) died in childbirth within the period above and the son was apparently looked after by his wife's sister. Not sure if formal adoption was followed. Cecil later married again and is now dead but he has 2 daughters from this second marriage so the first son would be a half brother and I am very interested in finding him if he is still alive.
