Searching for grandad history

Classification: Query
Surnames: Jones Jones-Henderson Killalea
My grandad was born in Wales as William John Jones. He was born in December 1926. I have no idea who his parents were and according to my granny they passed away very young and he was adopted. I'm not sure if he was adopted in England or Scotland as his name became William Jones-Henderson. My grandad passed away in 2008 and I had only met him once. I was 11 when he passed. Does anyone have any idea how I can find out who his parents were or how I can find out who adopted him or where? Its took me forever to find out where I actually come from on my granny's side which is Galway in Ireland so my grandad side seems a lot more difficult. I really want to find out more but I've searched everywhere and just cannot find anything as I'm unsure of where he was even born in Wales. My dad says he thinks its Bangor but it could be anywhere in caenarvonshire. If anybody has any idea on how I could possibly access more information on this please let me know.
My grandad married my gran in Salford in 1967. My gran is called Mary Henderson but was born Mary Ellen Killilea. They have 2 children my dad John David Jones-Henderson and Michael Anthony Jones-Henderson. My dad was born in Barton.
I seem to search everything but cannot find anything. I would appreciate if anyone could help. Thanks
