Looks as though William and Kathleen had five children before he died.  The last two appear to be twins as they have exactly the same registration details.

I see Kathleen remarried in 1958

There a quite a few possibles in the 1911.  I would suggest that you get the marriage certificate

Quote
Freebmd has marriage registered Q1 1934 at Newcastle under Lyme for Kathleen  Donlon and William Ratcliffe
 Could be the one

That will give you his father's name and occupation which will help when looking for the family in the 1911 census.

This is the full details for the marriage

Marriages Mar 1934   
Donlon    Kathleen    Ratcliffe    Newcastle L.    6b   123    
Ratcliffe    William    Donlon    Newcastle L.    6b   123

You would need to order the certificate from the GRO - this is the link for ordering

https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/app_select.asp

If you haven't used this website before you will need to register.  It looks as though certificates cost 11 now.
