Have you looked for John Morris and/or his wife Mary on the 1939 Register?

Nigel, you will get more people able to help if you post the information you already have.  As jonw65 pointed out, not everyone has access to FindMyPast.

Here's a link to the 1911 census on Familysearch for anyone trying to help

For some reason you have left off the four youngest children on the 1911.  They are Thomas (1902), Catherine (1904), Maggie (1906) and Fabby (1910).

I wonder if Fabby was a pet name for Phoebe?

Do you know what Mary's maiden name was?

If it is Jones then there is this birth record

MORRIS, PHOEBE       JONES 
GRO Reference: 1909  D Quarter in OSWESTRY  Volume 06A  Page 624

Nothing comes up with a maiden name of Burgess.

I see from the 1911 that John and Mary had 13 children, 9 of whom were still living and four who died.

I can well imagine how frustrated you are getting as with a name like Morris finding the right one becomes a very tricky endeavour.  :-\
