On 27 December 1907 Edward senior died at the National Hospital, Queen's Square, Holborn, London, there were multiple causes (paraplegia, spinal tumour, cystitis-septicaemia) given on the death certificate. Phyllis worked as a charwoman, but times would have been tough, fortunately she may have had support from her family – her brother Thomas lived a few doors away in Hampton Road.

Parents: Edward Willis and his wife Phyllis née Wilkins. 


Young Edward was their second or third child, it has not been possible to determine which because he had a twin sister, Kate Maria and readily available official records date births to within three months, not minutes.  Their elder sister was Marian Annie N (born 1895); they also had younger siblings: Mildred (1899), William Obed (1900), Arthur Harry (1902) and Thomas James (1906).

The family lived in Hampton Road in the area of Newbury known colloquially as ‘The City’.
