It is looking like Henry is not the father of all 12 children. George was mentioned as a brother at my Maud's funeral, last year. She is known as daughter of Henry.

There are two of the 12 not on his death certificate. I had assumed that the were deceased, but I believe they were omitted as they are the children of Evelyn an George.

The first child listed as Henry's was born in 1921.

Birth: 1913 C12170 George William Smith George William and Evelyn Maud Thomas
 
Death: 1962 B54055 George William Smith George William Evelyn Maud Thomas

Looks like George William SMITH probably deserted his wife.
His WW1 service file might be worth reading ;)

Yes, it certainly does look that way.  :-[
