Original says Ranald. 2 closed records, so another child to the couple? Perhaps a second marriage for either or both parents? And child/children not both theirs?

That's it Maddie, it has 2 ns on freebmd

Not seeing a marriage though.

Graham do you have any info on where Ranald was born/died?

Phillip

Phillip Report 14 Jun 2019 16:21

Hello Greyghost

The birth certificate states place of birth:
1 Hallerworth Bungalow, Romsey, Hants

Phillip Report 14 Jun 2019 16:22

Hello Rambling
Sadly no information on where he was born or died

Rambling

Rambling Report 14 Jun 2019 16:24

Do you have a marriage for Ian? The cert may give whether Ranald was deceased at that point?

I do not have a marriage for Ian.
Not being much help am I?

Rambling

Rambling Report 14 Jun 2019 16:57

Graham as you don't have a lot of info, can I ask what your connection to the family is? Is it on the McDonald side or Mann, it might help us to work 'sideways' :-)

Sadly neither. This is for a friend of my Mother, the lady would have loved to have found more. She is very unwell and I said that I would try and help but sadly I am unable. I have tried to obtain more information but she is in her nineties and unable to remember much at all.

Thank you all for trying
