Thanks Rosie. I did not expect to see him die in Scotland assuming that the death is my guy. My Leslie James Batten is the only birth registration in England and Wales for that time period. I can't speak for Scottish birth's.

There are no births showing on Scotlands people that would match that death.

Thanks amondg for his parents info. I had not gotten that far yet. Eva is particularly elusive prior to her marriage. There is a 1906 West Ham birth registration that may be her and also a possible 1911 West Ham family with a father William but no idea if her.

Sister Violet came to Canada 1919, in 1925 her father Arthur age 53 and Violet 23 returned to England arriving 11 August 1925, giving the address of 44 Myrtle Road Hampton.
She stayed 6 months and returned 1926 leaving from Southampton arrived Nova Scotia 13 February. Nearest relative given father A Batten, 44 Myrtle Road Hampton. 
Returning to work for Mr. Piper of 13 Vendome Avenue, Montreal.

I didn't mean to spoil the fun of research I made the assumption you were looking at all of Violet's siblings.

As to Eva in 1911 there is a foster child named Eva Taylor age 7 living in Suffolk?

On the marriage certificate she says her father William is a builder. Her address was Aubrey House Twickenham. I googled it, a very large house of a wealthy family so it's probable she was in service there prior to marrying.

First child being James A 1933 named using his father's middle name and his grandfather's first name.
Mary Edith 1935 also seems to be named for his mother and he had a sister Edith. Usually the first girl was named for her mother's family so no help there.
