Many thanks again, Cando. It is now past my bedtime here in London. I omitted to state that I was referring to his father William not my great uncle Walter. Your info

ROBINSON Walter
Father Evan William   Mother Annie JACKSON

 Evan William/William Evans Robinson was the son of Edward Robinson and Ann Evans. Edward was a successful builder in Southport, Lancs until I understand he fell off a ladder. His son William was not successful in running the family business, but it is interesting to see that Walter continued with the trade in Melbourne.
Thanks, too for Winifred's details.

Is it possible that Walter was married previously?

If the information on this death reg is accurate, Edna was born c1912 before Walter's marriage to Winifred.

There is a much earlier marriage in England  , age is way out though for an 1881 birth, as follows:

Marriages Jun 1891  
ROBINSON Walter     Ormskirk  8b 1046
BATES  Evelyn Gertrude    Ormskirk  8b 1046
so may not be connected.

I can't find a marriage for a Walter to an Evelyn in Aus however however there is this one in Ormskirk the same registration district as the speculative birth for Edna Mary.

Marriages Mar 1904  
ROBINSON    Walter  Ormskirk    8/1026     
WARE    Mary Eveline  Ormskirk    8b/1026

The marriage cert in 1917 should note Walter's status.  I'll see if I can find them on the 1911 census.

Yes same occupation and wife's name is Mary Eveline and they are both the same age.  Three kids and Edna is the middle one.
