James MAYWELL - Charlotte HOOPER Family Bible (General)

Searching for Worsfold/Parry births on FreeBMD shows no likely offspring to Frederick Worsfold and Gertrude Parry after their aforementioned 1917 marriage.
Perhaps not surprising seeing as the PR states Frederick was a "retired widower", and Gertrude was aged 34.

Searching for possible births of Frederick J Worsfolds on FreeBMD suggests he's from the Greater London, South East England area, with a few records to choose from. FamilySearch confirms;

1911 Newent, Cliffords Mesne Newent, Gloucestershire, England
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Frederick James Worsfold Head M 55 RETIRED COMMERCIAL CLERK. London Battersea, London
Sarah Ann Worsfold Wife F 49 Shillington, Bedfordshire
Esther Worsfold Mother F 82 Croydon, Surrey
Mary Jane Fossey Neice By Marriage F 33 Shillington, Bedfordshire


Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Births Jun 1856
WORSFOLD Frederick James Wandsworth 1d 412

So by time of his marriage to Gertrude he was aged abt 61.

Sadly it seems it was a short marriage, this is the only Death Record I can find anywhere that might be him;
