Question repairing hole in rubble foundation

I have dismantled a poorly built basement bathroom with the intention of doing it right (it had a rotten plywood floor sitting on sand ). After removing the walls I've found that the stone and rubble foundation looks pretty shaky - stones seem to be missing at the base, and there are quite simply large gaps at and above floor level.

Can I fill in these holes with cement? The house is 65 years old, should I just ignore it and not mess with the foundation given I haven't really had any water problems?

This sounds like something that you might want to have an engineer look at.

OR post a few pictures here so some people here could offer you better advice.
