From the notes of Alfred John Boon:

Bill was a clerk who worked for  Wolfe Bros, power tool manufacturers, Stamford St, Blackfriars, and his last position was as a submarine cable tester at STC, Woolwich. He was also a good footballer and turned out for Erith and Belvedere, in the London League, amongst other teams. During the war he was a clerk in the R.E.M.E. He married Winifred Smith, from Norwood, in 1941. They had one son, Michael.

Bill died on 10.9.74, a couple of weeks short of his 63rd birthday. He had previously had an operation for anxiety neurosis, a lobectomy. This changed his character, he became hard to get on with and hygiene mad, continuously washing his hands and shaking them dry. He would use a tissue to open a door.
