his wife died in 1923 aged 28 and he was already deceased at that point.
and his daughter was born in 1921, so its probably 1922/23

Where are you seeing his wife’s death? I can’t see it anywhere.

Update:

Dec 1901 Birmingham 6d 88
MARKLEW Alice Maud M
CURRAL William George or PATRICK William John

I think she married William George CURRALL and that this is them in 1911:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWZH-XTT

CURRALL, IVY  MAUD mmn DAVIES 
GRO Reference: 1904  M Quarter in BIRMINGHAM  Volume 06D  Page 171
Married: Mar 1930 Birmingham N. 6d 658
MORGAN John R
CURRELL Ivy M
Died: Mar 1980 BIRMINGHAM 32 1368
MORGAN Ivy Maud 20NO1903

CURRALL, WILLIAM  THOMAS mmn DAVIS 
GRO Reference: 1909  S Quarter in ASTON  Volume 06D  Page 366
Married: Jun 1931 W.Bromwich 6b 1734
CURRALL William T
RICHARDS Elsie M
Deaths:
CURRALL, WILLIAM  THOMAS  1909 
GRO Reference:  DOR  Q1/1991 in SWINDON  (7961A)  Volume 23  Page 2471
CURRALL, ELSIE  MARY 1908 
GRO Reference:  DOR  Q1/1995 in Swindon  (7961C)  Reg C44B  Entry Number 136

I’m thinking that the other children are from a first marriage of William/George, and the Charles is yours:

GRO is general records office

General Register Office
https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp

You need to register if you have not already used the site.  It is also very useful as it shows mothers maiden surnames on birth indexes before 1911 which are not currently showing on freebmd.  It also shows ages at death from 1837
