Well done, Spendlove! It is almost certainly the right family, as there is only one William Frank Lewer on freebmd.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Kelsey, Crampton, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Warwickshire, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.

The numbers are the references to order the birth certificate, if you choose to do so. It's a good habit to get into to quote the reference numbers in your records, as a reference point.

For the family that Spendlove has found, a possible marriage: William Henry Lewer, Stockbridge, March quarter 1885, 2c, 121. There is a Sarah Ann Blandford on the same page.

Good luck with your time and distance journey, Time and Distance!  You will pass much time and cover much distance in your quest for knowledge of the life and times of your ancestors!

I saw your User name, smiled to myself thought how appropriate!!  What a neat name for your journey.

And Welcome to Rootschat, whose people are always here and show great enthusiasm in helping  others along the way!   Don't know how much progress I would have made had it not been for the great teamworkers on here!

Cheers
Jeanne 😄
