There's probably not too many father and son Brentford connections (Wilkins', Dobsons, Dodgins off the top if my head), but how about sons of Bees who have played for other clubs? Must be quite a few, especially on the non league scene.
I got thinking about it after recently writing a piece on Zak Ansah, son of Andy, who is scoring goals for fun for Hythe Town in the Isthmian League.
I've also written pieces in the past on Zak Joseph, a highly rated striker on the West London non-league circuit who had now pitched up at Hampton. He's the son of Francis and nephew of Roger, so double points. Any more?

Andy Woodman, ex keeper, has a promising lad. Can’t think of his name now?

Freddie Woodman at Newcastle. Incidentally, I didn't realise that Andy Woodman is Head of Academy Goalkeeping at Arsenal. Done well for himself.

I was going to suggest Roger Stanislaus and Junior. Then I checked and found I had been making the wrong assumption for the past few years. #postoftheday

Leroy Rosenior and Liam. Leroy wasn't a player but was a Bee, so fits the OP's criteria.

Wasn’t Hurlock’s lad at West Ham academy?

Not a son but a nephew?! Allowed?!

Duncan McKenzie (Brentford 1932/1938) and Hamish McKenzie (Brentford 1964/1967). :)

The scorer of Forest's goal a minute ago, Matty Cash, is almost certainly the son of ex-Bees loanee Stuart Cash. There's no source, but Matty was born in Slough in 1997 when his father was a player in the vicinity, so more than likely his son.

He is.
