My grand parents were Hartley SHACKLETON and Mary Catherine NORMANTON both from Burnley. They married in 1902. My father James Robert was born in 1903 and his brother, Christopher, in 1907. He and his wife may have split up around 1911. They had a son Harry Ashworth SHACKLETON born in 1912 and a further son, Albert, in 1915. Mary Catherine died in 1916. Harry A. and Albert both seem to vanish from the records after that. Hartley was a "territorial" and he was recalled to the East Lancashire regiment in 1914. He went on to serve at Gallipoli and survived that and the war but was estranged from my father. I can find no marriage or death records that match Harry A. or Albert SHACKLETON after their births. Could they have been adopted either formally or informally with consequent name change? Can anyone help, please?
