George & Muriel I Kempt, with the (cannot name) son b. 1944 are at 38 Green Lane, Greenwich, Woolwich West in 1965 Electoral Register.

I cannot see a marriage or a death for the son either. (Ancestry go up to 2005 for marriage, 2007 for death)

Is there a death on Anc for George or Muriel?  If we find a year and district it might enable a search of obits, death notices etc to move the search forward.

Well I go to bed and wake up to lots of additional information and agree that Ada Hannah Corke is the mother of Raymond.

I wonder if Ada/Hannah/Edith ever worked for Arthur Cunliffe Shepherd and his wife Ada Mary Cunliffe Shepherd who lived at Winsford Hall in the Electoral rolls.

That's what happens when you give us leads and go to bed.  You can't turn your back on us for five minutes without us getting up to all sorts of fun  :)

Surely you can't be hinting that Arthur Shepherd (or a male relative) was misbehaving?  ;D ;D :o

Victor Corke - Ada's youngest brother - would appear to change his name to Cork.

He married a Hilda M. Beavers in 1916 - his surname transcribed as Cook on Ancestry.

They appear to have had just one child - a son named Victor Frederick Cook b.1917, d.2000.

Victor F married a lady named Kemp in 1940 and they had a son born 1944 in Ely.   Said son married a lady named Peacock 1966 Norwich (had one daughter) and according to electoral rolls he and his wife are living in Cromer, Norfolk. 

Obviously, I cannot name as still living but Victor F's son can be easily found in birth index, likewise his marriage in 1966.

Victor F. would have been a cousin of Raymond Shepherd (his son now living in Cromer would be some kind of cousin but too tired right now to work out the exact type).
