Thanks so much for the info, I have this Cert and it is Edward not Ernest, which is my Grandfathers name....Maybe he changed it or didn't know what it was. I have checked deaths and there is an edward there that could match...Is there a list of Orphanages, I have checked some...I have been looking for some years now and can't believe I can't find a trace of him..I need help if possible, if you can, thanks so much already....My Dad is in his eighties now and I promised I wouldn't give up....

I purchased that Cert and the name on it is Edward not Ernest and in the 1932 Census of Newcastle and Burwood show this person in two places at once voting the same year. Albert, my Gfather was married with two small children in Newcastle, Islington. While the other Albert was voting in Burwood.
