There is this family in 1911

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X72Y-X82

Also a bapt that gives Nellie DOB as 12 Feb 1901

Nellie Lever
Birth Date:   12 Feb 1901
Birth Place:   East Tisbury, Wiltshire, England
Father's name:   George Henry Baker Lever
Mother's name:   Emma James

1939 free index in Wiltshire gives a Nellie E Holliday later Sanger born same date. No other in Household

Marriage cert needed to confirm on right lines.

Brilliant stuff, Cas.

Brilliant research yourself John!   :) :o

All that's needed is the 1922 marriage cert to tie it all together

William Francis Halliday
born 9 April 1889
Teelin Coast Guard Station, Donegal

Well, what do you know.
1939 Register, free index
Put that d-o-b in, and you get
William F Halliday (9.4.89), living in Plymouth with Annie Halliday born 1892

A William Francis Halliday born 1889 died in 1941 in Plymouth -- there is a probate, but his wife's name was Annie. So either it's not your William F - or he had remarried.

So that definitely is William Francis, born Ireland, son of William Mark the coastguard and Selina (later in Dorset!).
Thanks to Cas we know that Nellie (well, the very likely Nellie) was not with her husband in 1939, so she and William could well have split up. But was William really married to Annie?

Thanks, Cas.
Yes, I do agree, Nigel really does need the marriage certificate to know for sure who they are.

Nellie states married 1939, so unlikely, unless divorced later or bigamy. He dies 1941. She remarried 1945.

Great findings John!

Well, there is a William F Halliday marriage to Annie E Aston in East Stonehouse in 1914.
So he could be the Donegal born chap in Plymouth in 1939.
Death in Plymouth in 1982 of Annie Elizabeth Halliday, born 2 Nov 1892
Though I can't find a likely Aston birth to match.

Nellie looks good. William still a mystery!
