Welcome to Rootschat

Was he born in Staffordshire or Cheshire?

Have you found him on 1891/1901/1911 censuses?

If you are only seeking details of his employment at Davenham Hall you would need to contact Cheshire Records Office to see if they still exist

There is no death in Cheshire in 1935 for the profile given.  Davenham came under Northwich Reg District and the only one was in1925 for a William Burgess b approx 1883

Eliza Ellen Getley was born 1887 Cannock

Unless you already know his birthplace - You need to look at the full 1911 census entry for William Burgess b 1882 living in Davenham.
