Did he live in Peterborough? Was he a motor engineer? My father Nigel William Rowbotham and aunty Rosemary Rowbotham were brought up by their grandparents after their mother Doreen Blanche Rowbotham (nee Melsom) and father Aflred William Rowbotham were not able to look after them. He was in my father memory in the RAF and had trained as a motor engineer, that is what is on the birth certificate.
I wonder if it I is the same chap?
If so, we must be related! Hello! Distant relative!
