The family now agree that we have been looking at the wrong Gladys Wilson as you have pointed out.
The defect the three children suffered from was Hypophosphataemia, I hope I've spelt it correctly, which is noticeable at birth. It is something akin to rickets and dwarfism.
We are now in a position where we have a document that states that Gladys Joyce was born on 5th September 1925 to John Travers and Gladys Wilson and another saying that she was adopted some six years later, her mother having died, but nothing else.
We know the two boys were sent to a Scattered Home the records of which are not available until 2022.
I guess we will have to wait 'till then when the 1921 census will also be available.
