Thomas Marshall Hards son of Leo and Ethel - born 27 June 1906 passed away June 1987 Worthing West Sussex.  Volume 18 page 2203

Thomas M Hards  may have married Kathleen M Norman - Q3 1938 - Hendon Middlesex - 3a 1890

At least one son born to this couple in 1939 Hendon but possibly more if they moved around.

According to a UK return passenger list for that young man he was a  english student returning from New York to Southampton and going to  to 3 Eastbury Road Oxhay Watford  in 1959 - so another of the births for a female in 1946 Watford could be a sister.
