Thank you Lu and Minniehaha very much.  That is amazing stuff and has completely thrown me with John William Clegg as I thought he'd died in 1912. I pride myself on corroborating and getting my genealogy beyond doubt, and I clearly have missed something there....(although unusually I have not bought the certificate and maybe would have picked up I was wrong had I done so). 
ALso the fact that he lived to 1930 means more likely that someone will have a photo of him somewhere. He is the only brother of four I don't have a picture of, though I do of his father.
Dorothy's death and married name and should help, and I will follow that link to see her will.

I am shocked John William went over there, but its great when you get new information that leads you down a new path.  I can't think at all who Lucy Allcock is, and will have a look at their mother's family which I've not done.  It doesn't ring a bell for the Cleggs. Genealogy is never ending.

Thank you so much, I'm very chuffed.  I need now to find up to date rellies and hope for the existance of photos.

THank You

Hi Neil,

"I need now to find up to date rellies and hope for the existance of photos."

Fingers crossed the newspaper death notice for John Leonard will take you closer. I will send it to you as soon as I have news......

Unfortunately I don't think you will be able see the will of Dorothy Edith unless you pay for it. Not yet digitised.

However I will see if I can obtain a death notice for her.....
