It might be worth a try to investigate a little. If you don't try, the chance is zero or close to zero.
Go through archives and find someone who may have been a neighbor to your father. Definitely find out who adopted him and find their family members and neighbors. Of course, in the UK. Don't give up!!!

Most adoptions at that date were informal, so I would think your chances of finding any documentation are unlikely. The first legislation governing adoption in the UK was passed in 1926.

My grandfather was "adopted" after his parents died. I only knew this because I found him on the 1901 census, described as "adopted son" in a nearby family. I think that is the most you can hope for.
