4 Children altogether, Phyllis, Born 1907 Exeter
                                Gilbert 1911 Exeter
                                Ena Margaret 1913 Farnborough
                                Monica Isabelle Louraine 1916 Farrnborough

Wife/Children on his attestation/service record

Wife: Maud Margaret Keowen? m 22-12-09 Exeter
Arthur William Audsley? b 27-05-11 Exeter
Phlys Ruby b 9-5-07 Exeter
Eva Margarett b 12-8-13 S. Farnborough
Monica Isobel Dorian b 5-9-16 Farnborough.

(Mauds surname is actually McKeowen, married Holy Trinity, Exeter. Grooms age 20, spouse 23).

In 1920 He is listed as Absent voter from 8 Park Rd, Farnborough.
Brown, William Robert 3646 B.S.M 504th Bty. R.F.A.

He attested Belfast 18-1-1899 stated age 20. 
Discharged Jan 1921, Para 392 (xxi), address on discharge Drill Hall, Ennersdale Rd, Hither Green.
Attestation/Service can be found under service number 1040246.

All this really does is make birth year of 1879 more likely.

Thank you ScOOp, I have all that information on him, I also have his birth certificate that I can't attach because the file is too big, but it does say December 1879. And Maud's maiden name was McKeown. Just Williams death I can't work out!

What information would I find out on deceased. Com about the March 1945 William Brown, seems the more than likely candidate,? Can't find that particular one on that site though, any help will be appreciated

Only the 3 August 21945 burial William R Brown is on deceasedonline.com. See below for available info.

For other details [place, date & cause of death, occupation, informant etc] you will need to buy the death certificate [9.25 from GRO online].
