There appears to be a UK marriage for the son in the 1980s, but without the marriage cert. can't say for sure if this is the son of James and Violet.

The other initials match on that 1980's marriage.  You would need to buy that certificate to see if he was previously married

Have you checked freebmd for his other marriages?  1929 to Florence Rampton is a possibility if his father was Henry Joseph Alexander

His birth reg is on freebmd but you have his full birthdate from his death reg
