His full name appears to be Harold James Youkee, born around 1912, from the Australian death index.

He is in one tree on Ancestry, which has information on his Mother, but little on his Father.

Where do you think his parents married?
Father disappeared before 1931 as not showing on ER's with wife and son?

Birth is under surname "You Kee" - 1910 - Harold James to James and mother Mary Allen.  Marriage as May Allen to You Kee (no James). Death of James You Kee in 1917 aged 54.

It looks like the mother was born Henrietta May Edmonds in 1888 but her mother, Emily nee Stevens/Stephens, was the widow of Edward Allen who married a Frederick Edmonds in 1888 - so there may have been some confusion over who was her biological father hence the use of the name Allen.

From Australian death index, (not access to original)

Jas You Kee age 54 (born about 1863) at Ballarat, Victoria in 1917,  registration number 249.

Father: You Kee Mie Young      Mother:  Ah Yen Unknown Ah

This would make him quite old to be his father, and 25 years older than his wife?
