Just starting, need advice/tips

Hi there, I've just started tracing my family tree. Bit difficult as my decesed maternal grandfather so far I can't find a birth record.
His mother was Hermione Cradock, father Victor Grunhut. He was apparently illigitimate but there are some documents that my Grandmother has for me to look through, one is hermiones will naming my grandfather as her son.

He is Philip Alexander Hamilton, no ideas yet where Hamilton comes from!!

I have found Hermione, her bro & some of their ancestors. I have been told Admiral Cradock is a relation but can't work out how?

Is there a way to find what children someone had without knowing dates of birth?

I am enjoying the hunt but it is frustrating!!!

any tips appreciated!!!
