- I saw your web site and noticed that you were posting a number of requests from people in search of relatives. Well if I may ask myself it would be fantastic if you could post my search for a lost family member.

I am in search of any information on a baby boy born on the 7th of December 1931 at home. His birth name was Nigel Anthony Barrington Barr. His mother was Mabel Ethel Barr (Nee Ridout) and his Father was Herbert Charles Barr. They married in Gosport in 1926 and were resident at No 4 Suffolk Cottages, Alver Road, Gosport.

I think baby Nigel may have been placed for adoption?  If anyone knows of Nigel or knows what happened to him if he was placed up for adoption - any help or information would be fantastic for the family. If you feel any further details may help my search please let me know? Many thanks in advance. Best Regards Stuart J Barr
