His birth reg shows his mothers maiden name as Bateman and the marriage as 1915

You can use freebmd to search for Harris births with mothers maiden name Bateman to search for siblings.  However - there are other marriages between couples with the same surnames so unless you have some additional information you may not be able to determine the correct entries

www.freebmd.org.uk

The same website can be used to search for a marriage for William but without some additional information as to his wife's maiden name you may struggle as Harris is quite a common surname.

As he probably married in the late 1930's or 1940's - information as to any children born to his marriage cannot be given here as Rootschat has a "no living persons" policy

Doing a basic search in the 1939 register on Findmypast Ada S M and Henry R are living in the Deptford district. There is one blocked entry on this record.
Searching then for a William H born 1916 there is one in Deptford living with a Henry R and one blocked entry.

Hi,

In the "London, England, Electoral Registers, 1832-1965" I can see Ada S M HARRIS, Henry R HARRIS and sometimes William H HARRIS living at 14 Chalcroft Road, Lewisham between 1945 and 1956, after this Ada is on her own in 1957 and with William H HARRIS in 1958 and 1959, then on her own until 1964.


The "England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1966" has,

Ada Susan Matilde HARRIS of 14 Chalcroft Road London E.13 died 23 April 1965 at Grove Park Hospital London S.E.12 Probate London 8 June to William Henry HARRIS petrol station manager 1261

Oops got to go now, late for dinner :-[

Regards,
Daisy

The will may tell you - if not - you can look for a marriage on freebmd  www.freebmd.org.uk

However - as I said in my earlier reply

Also - if you read reply 4 above the impression given is that William & his mother were the only occupants
