Have you looked for the family on the 1939 register.  Are you sure that the male you have named is not still living.

Freebmd has a female birth in 1927 mmn Sherriff. and another possible sibling in 1944 Rugby reg district

Just to say that the birth is registered in the 1st quarter 1932 as Gearald Smith mmn Sherif

Possible death for him in 1949?

Have you got approximate birth or death years for Cornelius and Priscilla?

Is that a good estimate or a total guess? Any idea if Cornelius could have been a lot older?  Just trying to pin them down.

No idea at all of death years, having surname Smith....

It's just a guess I know he died before 1955 because he died before his granddaughter was born x

There is a death in 1939, if she used maiden name/never actually married...??
(Means she will not show on 1939 register)

Deaths March quarter 1939 
Priscilla Sherriff age 36 in Rugby    6d   1028
