Profile

Full name Albert McInroy
Born 23 April 1901 in Walton-le-Dale, Preston, Lancashire [no registration found].
Birth notes Strange one is our Albert McInroy. It is only the death registration that tells us McInroy was actually born, providing his birthdate. But no birth registration can be found. No Albert McInroy can be found until his son is born in 1931. Nor does he appear in two census'. In fact, no McInroy can be found in the Preston and surrounding area. Nor can he be found in any genological trees. Leaving only one plausible theory. He was adopted!
