The marriage was witnessed by Marian Horbury Harris, Hubert Frank Adams and Winifred Agnes Harris. They both gave their address as 8 Boscombe Road. Beatrice's father Arthur was dead. Claud gave his occupation as a clerk.9,1,10 On 29 September 1939 in the National Register Claud was listed as living at Iona, 201 Hatfield Road, Uxbridge, Middlesex, England with his wife Beatrice. Claud was a Secretary for a Building Contractor living with his wife.11 His wife Beatrice died on 1944 in Uxbridge, Middlesex, England.12 He married Julie Alice White, daughter of Albert White, on 12 April 1947 in St Algate, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England, The ceremony followed the reading of banns and was witnessed by A J Adams and A E White. Claud was described as a widower and Company Secretary and livig at 201 Harefield Road, Uxbridge. Julia was a spinster living at 48 Cowley Road, Oxford. It is understood that Julia was Claud's housekeeper prior to their wedding.13,1 Claud died on 31 October 1950 in 201 Herefield Road, Uxbridge, Middlesex, England, aged 67.14,1,15 Administration papers were issued with a will on 16 July 1985 in Oxford. His effects were valued at £2,900. I guess there may have been some problems with his estate as it proved in Oxford thirty five years after his death. Amazing!15 Claud is remembered as a quiet reticent man, said to have made many losses with his love of gambling. He retired to Weston on the Green, Oxfordshire, into lodgings with the Post Mistress. He was said to have a split personality. He appears to have moved to Uxbridge with his wife before he died.1
