Billy M Avery
« on: Tuesday 06 February 18 00:16 GMT (UK) »
Need some help please in trying to track Billy.
 His was born 1918 Guildford and birth registered as Billy M Avery. The M probably is McClellan which was used for some of his siblings. Parents were Joseph McClellan Avery (1887-1936) and Ada Edmonds(1887-?). Nothing shows up using Billy and too many using William. There does not seem to be a death of the right age for a William 1918-40 so I thought maybe there is a military record but I did not see one.

Are you sure he married Ada Edmonds?  There is also this marriage...

Joseph Mcclellan Avery  m  Martha Wood.     1906  Dorking    2a   359

You said his siblings also had McClellan in there name but most of the Avery births in the GRO for Guildford in the period 1906-1917 that have McClellan in the names have the mmn as Horton or Jupp.

The only births I can find with Edmonds are Ronald 1908, Jack 1910 and Eric 1912.

That seems to be the right family with Jack and Ronald
