Many thanks to all. Can someone tell me how they found the births of his children please. I am a relative novice at this and can do the basics on ancestry. You have certainly given me something to think about.
For those interested here is a little more. I have been writing up his nieces life story(my mother in law) which is basically a set of her memories. She is the one in the family photo in front of the bay window on the extreme left. She was born in1914. This is what she wrote about 1925.

Then in 1925 we went to Belfast where my Uncle Edward lived with his family, Aunt Mary and nine cousins. Nellie and Lily were nearest in age to me. Uncle Edward made ice cream and he supplied both Woolworths. Two of the girls usually delivered it, so I was allowed to go with them. I thought it was great. We went for three weeks, the first two weeks Dad wasn't with us as he had to stay at work, then he joined us for the last week.

 This probably dates that photo to somewhere between1930 and 1936 when the niece married.
