There is a baptism for William

William Whiston Westley, baptised on 24 January 1842 in Coventry

Parents are Thomas and Maria Westley.

If I have the right Walter in 1881 -living at 43 & 44, 43, White Friars Lane, Coventry St Michael with St John, Coventry parents are:-

William W Westley b.1842 and Matilda Westley b. 1846

All the family are listed as being born in Coventry.

This is the parents marriage

If you haven't done so already, I would suggest that you obtain the marriage certificate for Walter and Clara.

That will give you his father's name which you can then use to look for Walter in the census records.

Is this your Walter?

I see that the marriage is on a typed list for Hannah but for Frederick his is a handwritten addition at the bottom of the typed page.

I would agree with David and go with the 1107 page number.

The family are on the 1939 Register living at 41 Thorpe Street , Stockton

Going by the births on Free BMD it looks as though Thomas was one of nine children.

Added: Actually I think he may be one of 11 children.  Two Patterson/Orr births registered in Durham. One of those is on the 1939 Register.

If Thomas was your uncle then you would be descended from one of his siblings.  Would your relevant parent be a father or mother?

This is probably his parents marriage
