Thank you for the replies

Both Henry Gee burials are at Philip Park Cemetery
Died 27-3-1912 so born 1854 approx
Died 10-9-1914 so born 1861 approx
Canít match them to 1911 Census
I did get the burial image for the 1914 death but still not sure
Occupation slater
Address 18 Nelson Street, Newton
Think I will get both just in case Alice is the informant

1939
Alice is married, her husband died 1951 in Grantham, son was informant.

Forgot to add before I have the Workhouse Birth & Cemetery Register entries for the child Alice Willis.
Thanks again.

I received the 2 pdf's for the 1912 and 1914 deaths and can confirm neither is the one I'm after.
1912 was married to Sarah and found in 1911 with children.
1914 informant was son at same address (son's) in 1911.

I now have the deaths of Alice Willis and her son Henry Gee.
Alice died 21st January 1962 at Rochford Hospital, Essex. She was listed as widow of James Henry Willis, a railway cleaner. The informant was H Gee, son and she was living at the same address as Henry in Basildon.
Henry died 14th December 1980 at St Andrews Hospital, Billericay, Essex. The informant was his son but I won't name him as he may be alive. Henry had remarried in 1974 and information from the marriage certificate confirmed that Alice's son Henry Gee and the Henry Gees from the 1974 marriage and the 1980 death were all the same person.
