Question Seeking info on Neils Sorensen, Cirrus 1957

My son in law is seeking any info on his father, Danish born Neils Sorensen, who was working on Cirrus as a mechanic, I believe, when he met and married Alice Mary known as Joan Robinson, who was also working on the ship.

They married in 1957 and their son was born 1958. Neils left when he was tiny and the child's mother prevented any further contact.

I'd like to help my son in law to find out more about his father so if anyone knows of his whereabouts, or any details about him, I'd be very grateful if you could contact me.

Neils would now be in his 80s so I realize it's a big ask, but it doesn't hurt to try, maybe somebody knows or knew him.

Thanks.

. I think your best bet would be the Swedish merchant navy records from the very little I know I believe the Swedes kept very good records there are a few photos of the Cirrus in the gallery if you contact the people who posted the photos they may have if you are very lucky more information about the ship good luck regards
