I do know the Philip you are referring to.  Some records I checked say he was born in Southend on Sea or Islington, London.

The following is some basic information on Phil Taylor (not the one who lost his leg) that I found since my original post on this subject. Errors and confusions abound, but the following is from reliable sources.

Philip George Taylor b.1895 Southend-on-Sea, Essex (Father George Henry, butcher)

George emigrated with his family to Canada before WWI. Philip served in Canadian Overseas Force.

Married Jane Elizabeth Olwen Bicknell 29 Nov. 1917 in St Mary's Church, Wimbledon

Philip & Jane had 3 children together: Olwen Megan 1920-1993, Stephen George & Philip Bert

Phil Taylor died 1959 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Ooops...Before I get shot at....Sorry folks, what was I just saying about errors??? :-[ :o ;)

Philip's second wife was Lois Ann McCormack, by whom I think he had the two sons, possibly both born in Phoenix.
