Now searching FreeBMD for Frederick Baker, luckily again Eli is an unusual name (compared to say Edward etc), so we quickly find this helpful record;

Surname First name(s) Mother/Spouse/DoB District Vol Page
Deaths Mar 1970 (>99%)
BAKER Frederick Eli 12De1911 Gloucester C 7b 1359

So his Birth date is believed to be 12 December 1911. A helpful record but sadly he's not going to be found in the 1911 Census taken just 9 months earlier. However knowing his birthdate means we can revisit FreeBMD. For Births after 1911 the FreeBMD records only gives the initials of second names, and there are several Frederick E Bakers listed, but knowing the date and place we can be fairly confident this record is our man. The big advantage with FreeBMD Birth records after 1911 is they also now include the mother's maiden name !

Births Mar 1912 (>99%)

(Note: this record shows his birth was registered during the Jan/Feb/March quarter of 1912, it's entirely plausible he was actually born in late 1911 and they waited until after the busy Christmas time and maybe bad weather before going to register).

This record is confirmed by GlosBMD site;

Now trying to find a marriage of his parents, by searching the FreeBMD site for all Baker/Chamberlain marriages, I'm surprised to find this is not anything like as unusual a name combination as I thought it might be, and cannot find any obvious ones in our area.

HOWEVER I can use the same FreeBMD site to search for all births to these parents, especially in the Stroud area. There may be other siblings who were born before 1911, but for Baker/Chamberlain in Stroud district can find these, hopefully you may recognise some of the names ?.
