I think you r worrying too much. As long as you and your family travel to singapore with British passport, you are safe (even if your kids have 2 or 3 passports).
No country in their right constitution will kidnap a person who is assumed to be a former citizen of a country. Moreover, passport is the proof of your kids' nationality, not your kids' birthplace. Or else the passport has no meaning at all. Furthermore, there are so many families are in your case (mine too) and we encountered no problem.
Maybe that is why you do not find any information that relates to your worry. Because your situation is non-existance. If I were wrong, then many will not travel to Singapore, and Sing Govt will have their hands full dealing with foreign govt over issue like "British citizen forced to serve in Singapore", and that I think is illogical.
1. Most countries are going to the biometric passports. This will contain all kinds of information including country of Birth.
2. Singapore already uses Photo ID Recognition software to catch persons returning to Singapore using different passports.
3. Most advanced countries are also tapped into Interpol. With their worldwide database at these countries disposal it will be rather easy to track people.
4. It will be only a matter of time be for the biometric passport data will be used for computerized passenger lists. These lists will be forwarded to all stops for a given flight including the terminal city. By the time the flight arrives, all information will have been checked with interpol, the arrival countries databases and so forth. Gotcha!
Even if the kid waltzes in using a British Passport, e.g., if his passport shows a Singapore place of birth or for that matter a Singapore Parent. Easy-Peasy to check against their own birth data records. If the kid was born in Singapore and was a Singapore Citizen, It wouldn't matter what kind of passport the kid was carrying, unless there is a record of renounciation in his file, he is still a Singaporean Citizen and will be subject to the laws of the country (including the carrying of two passports in violation of Singapore Law). And there is absolutely nothing that the British Government can do about it. The US government goes so far as saying that if you do have dual citizenship, you are subject to the laws of whichever country you happen to be in at the time.
